Mercy said Tuesday that it will begin construction next week on a $4.1 million, 7,400-SF primary care clinic to serve north Bentonville.
The clinic is among seven Mercy will open as part of a $247 million expansion in northwest Arkansas that includes a new seven-story tower at the Rogers hospital.
Mercy Clinic Primary Care-Walton Boulevard will house four providers and 14 exam rooms at 1401 N. Walton Blvd.
Mercy Clinic President Dr. Steve Goss said north Bentonville's population is growing, creating a need for more primary care providers in the area.
"To us, it's much more than a strategy," Goss said. "It's about how can we be present in the community where people need us most? How can we open doors to enhance the quality of life for our friends and neighbors?"
Crossland Construction Co. of Columbus, Kansas, aims to complete the building in eight to nine months.
