Arkansas Children’s Hospital to expand Jonesboro clinic after $750,000 donation
LITTLE ROCK (Talk Business & Politics) —
Little Rock-based Arkansas Children’s Hospital will double the size of its Jonesboro clinic after businessman Chris Fowler and his wife Kim donated $750,000 Thursday (Aug. 9) toward the project.
The money will be used to buy the building the clinic currently leases, ACH President and CEO Marcy Doderer told Talk Business & Politics. The clinic now uses about 4,000 square feet, but it will use the entire 8,000 square feet of space that’s available once a renovation is completed, she said.
The renovation work will begin in 2019. The donation will be used to buy the building, and the rest of the renovation will be paid for by ACH. A cost estimate for the entire project has not been set, she said. When completed, the clinic will have the same look and feel as ACH clinics in Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas, she added.
“It’s an important gift from the Fowler family,” Doderer said. “It brings their total contribution to Arkansas Children’s Hospital to $1 million.”
