Arkansas Heart Hospital Announces Construction of Second Hospital, Encore

Arkansas Heart Hospital proudly announces construction to begin on its second hospital in Bryant, Arkansas in the coming weeks. The new hospital is located less than 15 miles from its flagship. “We are excited to build a second hospital in one of the fastest growing communities in Arkansas”, said Drew Jackson, President and COO. “This new general acute hospital will provide innovative cardiac care, while also focusing on bariatrics and peripheral artery disease.”

The new four story modern hospital will be located off Highway 5 in Bryant. “It was a natural choice,” said Dr. Bruce Murphy, Chief Executive. “Saline County has been the home to our Benton Clinic for many, many years. It’s a special community to me and I am delighted at the decision to expand there.”

Arkansas Heart Hospital Encore will include a full service emergency department, state of the art imaging and an attached medical facility with multiple specialties. The projected opening date for Arkansas Heart Hospital Encore is the latter part of 2020.
