This position would join a practice of seven pediatric otolaryngologists—six providing coverage primarily at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock and one at the Arkansas Children’s Northwest location in Springdale, AR. This brand new children’s hospital is located in one of the fastest growing regions in the country, with many local amenities, and abundant natural resources. Northwest Arkansas is a highly desirable area that is home to Walmart, Tyson Foods, Crystal Bridges Museum, and the University of Arkansas.
Physicians will be able to manage all aspects of pediatric otolaryngology that does not require an intensive care unit (PICU will be available in the future). The practice has a high volume of pediatric sinus, otology, head and neck, and general Otolaryngology cases. This boutique practice is perfect for either a new or experienced pediatric otolaryngologist and will be hired by UAMS as an assistant or associate professor level depending on experience. This active, growing practice includes a full time pediatric otolaryngologist, an experienced nurse practitioner and dedicated specialty nurse support. Audiology, Speech, Nutrition, PT, and respiratory therapy services are on site. Pediatric hospitalists cover inpatients as needed. Call duties are shared with a local Otolaryngology practice. Academic support will be through the university including support for research and education.
As part of our promise to create healthier tomorrows for all children, we created a statewide network of care that helps ensure we meet families wherever they live. Part of this bold initiative is our 24-bed hospital and campus in northwest Arkansas, one of the fastest-growing areas of the country and home to corporations including Walmart, J.B. Hunt and Tyson. U.S. News & World Report put Northwest Arkansas at No. 4 in its 2019 of the 25 Best Affordable Places to Live and the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Metropolitan Statistical Area at No. 4 on its 2019 list of Best Places to Live. Our vision of creating care close to home includes tailoring plans to reach families in all corners of the state through telemedicine initiatives, regional clinics and mobile outreach.
