Mercy Hospital NWA Opens New Tower

Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas opened its new seven-story patient tower and health services expansion in early November. The 190,000-square-foot project includes the addition of new cardiac and general surgical suites, an eventual 150 new patient beds, and an expanded neonatal unit with a 24/7 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for premature babies. The cost of the expansion, which includes two floors that can be outfitted later to meet future growth, was $133 million.
