The new 330-square-foot patient rooms provide ample space and feature cutting-edge equipment, ensuring patients receive the highest-quality care. During the planning and design of the new unit, physicians and staff members utilized a mock-up space to provide insight and guidance, helping ensure appropriate placement of all equipment.
“Our state-of-the-art facility allows us to continue meeting the needs of our patients, while also growing and adapting to serve our growing communities. We’re not just growing—we’re growing together,” said Troup.
Cromwell Architects Engineers designed the unit, and Conway-based Nabholz Construction is the general contractor. The unit will open for patient care by the end of May.
