Arkansas Urology will begin work this month on a nearly $6 million, 12,467-SF new outpatient surgery center in Little Rock, expected to open by October 2017.
All outpatient procedures being performed at Arkansas Urology will take place in the new surgery center, along with various new procedures to treat BPH, overactive bladder and prostate cancer, as well as other urological conditions, the company said.
The center will be located behind Arkansas Urology's Little Rock campus on Centerview Drive.
"With the surgery center being located at our central clinic campus, patients from throughout our service area will have their surgeon-physicians and their staffs readily accessible, which will increase efficiency, reduce costs and provide better patient outcomes," CEO E. Scot Davis said in a news release. "This integrated approach to addressing urological issues will enhance the already exceptional service our patients have come to expect from our staff and providers."
The new building will house two 450-SF operating rooms and four procedure rooms and is designed to accommodate future expansions.
"The physicians of Arkansas Urology are committed to providing the latest technology and innovative processes to enhance the quality of life for our patients," said Dr. Tim Langford, president of Arkansas Urology. "We are honored to be able to bring this state-of-the-art facility to the residents of central Arkansas and will continue our long history of exceptional care to the patients we serve."
