U of Arkansas medical school creates health system

Little Rock-based University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is organizing its clinical enterprises into a statewide health system, called UAMS Health, the university announced Oct. 8.

UAMS Health includes the UAMS Medical Center, as well as outpatient clinics, regional sites and digital health clinics. The system serves every county in the state and runs eight regional campuses across Arkansas.

"UAMS is more than a hospital, it is more than a university and it is more than cutting-edge research," said UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson, MD, said in a press release. "We are a health system — one that serves all of the state — and this reorganization demonstrates our commitment to providing quality health care to all Arkansans."
