MERCY HOSPITAL NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (NWA)
Expanding an existing hospital to meet the growing needs of the community.
Located in Rogers, Arkansas, Mercy Hospital of Northwest Arkansas was opened in 2008. Operating at capacity within just a few years, Mercy engaged Lamar Johnson Collaborative to study the needs of the community and provide a master plan for the campus. The outcome of the planning and programming exercise is a new eight-story tower that includes new beds for cardiac, NICU and pediatric inpatients, as well as diagnostic and testing departments. The existing surgery platform will be expanded to include four new operating rooms (1 CVOE, 1 Hybrid and 2 General ORs) as well as 4 shell operating rooms for future expansion. A post-anesthesia care unit as well as private rooms for pre-admitting and post-recovery are also included. The project also anticipates a future emergency department expansion of fit out of additional patient rooms on the upper floors of the hospital.
