UAMS Medical Center
The state's only academic teaching hospital and a Level 1 trauma center, UAMS Medical Center is a component of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and thus a part of the University of Arkansas System.
The 422-bed facility employs more than 3,000 Arkansans and during the 2011 fiscal year brought in revenue of $1.3 billion.
Opened in 1879, what is now known as UAMS Medical Center has been ranked among "America's Best Hospitals" 13 consecutive times by U.S. News & World Report. After a $197 million, 553,000-SF expansion in 2007, the old University Hospital was rechristened UAMS Medical Center and even featured on the cover of the American Hospital Association's magazine.
The hospital started out as a free clinic, later became known as City Hospital, and was located just off McArthur Park in Little Rock in what is now the UALR Bowen Law School. The hospital and med school moved to its current location on Markham in midtown Little Rock in 1956.
Dan Rahn is chancellor of the UAMS campus.
