NPMC Invests in Property, Plans for Expansion

Clearing has begun on the nearly 9 acres that NPMC recently purchased with intentions of expansion to meeting the growing healthcare needs of the Hot Springs community.

National Park Medical Center recently began clearing and preparing almost 9 acres of land adjacent to their current location for the purpose of completing some key expansion initiatives by the end of 2014.  The expansion space is located to the west of the hospital between the HSCC golf course and Hollywood Avenue.  “We are looking forward to expanding some key service lines, and continuing our mission to meet the growing healthcare needs of the Hot Springs region,” said Jerry Mabry, Capella Healthcare’s Arkansas Market President. 

Detailed building plans are not yet ready for public release, but expanded service lines are expected to include a self-contained expanded Cardiology Center of Excellence, medical imaging, emergency services, outpatient services, surgery and women’s services.  Other key services will be phased in over the next 2-3 years.  “Architectural plans are in the works and we look forward to sharing detailed building schematics as they become available” said Mandy Golleher, NPMC’s director of marketing and volunteer services.  “The most recent architectural estimates indicate the projects could be in the range of a $40-45 million dollar investment when all stages are complete” said Mabry.

NPMC is planning updates to the current building and property which will include new flooring, furnishings, corridor updates, cosmetics and a new chapel.  

“We have been extremely appreciative of the outpouring of support from physicians, patients and the community especially in the past year and a half.  We have been very busy continuing to pursue our mission of what’s required to deliver the very best short and long-term healthcare solutions to this region.  Our commitment to this process has never wavered and is stronger today than ever” said Mabry.
