Women & Infants Center Opens at Washington Regional Medical Center

1 min read

Washington Regional Medical System’s $65 million Women & Infants Center in Fayetteville will start taking patients on Monday.

The main feature of the project is a 133,000-SF five-story patient tower, which will connect to the existing women’s center at Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville.

The tower will have 100 additional patient rooms, additional operating room space and the hospital’s second helipad. A 350-space parking garage will also be built as part of the project.

Next month, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkoma will open a 5,600-SF, six-bedroom Ronald McDonald House on the fifth floor of the center.

The expansion will allow the hospital to deliver up to 3,500 babies annually and provide care for infants born as early as 26 weeks, Gina Maddox, a spokeswoman with Washington Regional Medical System, earlier told Arkansas Business. In 2015, Washington Regional delivered 1,245 babies.

Construction on the project, $46 million of the total cost, started in February 2015. Robins & Morton of Plano, Texas, was the contractor, and HKS Inc. of Dallas was the architect.
