LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Baptist Health) -- Baptist Health has purchased approximately 37 acres to construct a wholly owned and operated medical center in Conway to serve the growing healthcare needs of Faulkner and surrounding counties.

"Baptist Health and a dedicated team of local physicians will bring to the community of Conway and surrounding areas an innovative and cooperative approach to providing the highest standards of clinical quality, a fully staffed emergency room, and a proven track record of long-term commitment to supporting Arkansas communities," said Russell Harrington, president and CEO of Baptist Health.

Baptist Health is collaborating with more than 30 Conway-based physicians to develop and open the new medical center in Conway to be operated as a not-for-profit, faith-based community hospital providing comprehensive clinical services.
