Arkansas hospital gets $12M to help support new acquisitions

The Arkansas General Assembly committed $12 million to El Dorado-based South Arkansas Regional Hospital through the Little Rock-based University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

The funding will help support costs associated with South Arkansas Regional's acquisition of the Medical Center of South Arkansas, according to a May 2 University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences news release.

"Improving the quality of care in rural Arkansas is a priority for UAMS," UAMS Health CEO Cam Patterson, MD, said in the release. "Working together with our community partners, we will establish our ninth regional campus in El Dorado that will support primary medical care for generations."
