Arkansas Heart Hospital Receives Patients From Neighboring Hospital

On Friday afternoon, Arkansas Heart Hospital began receiving patients from Arkansas Surgical Hospital. “We didn’t hesitate to help our friends across the river,” said President Drew Jackson.

According to officials with Arkansas Surgical Hospital (ASH), they learned that wastewater manholes already underwater were beginning to back up and could possible enter the facility as flood waters increase. In an abundance of caution, and interest of patient and staff safety, the immediate decision was made to transfer patients to Arkansas Heart Hospital.
