How does Little Rock compare?
The Brookings Institution ranks Little Rock the seventh strongest economy in America, with the
second lowest increase in unemployment and the seventh best housing market.
Manpower's Employment Outlook Survey projects the region among the nation's strongest in
hiring. Forbes.com ranks Little Rock the 22nd best place in America for business and careers,
while the region's income growth is the nation's seventh best.
Southern Business and Development magazine put Metro Little Rock atop its regions thriving in a
tough economy. Editor Michael Randle wrote that there is “no doubt in our minds which southern
market we would place at the top of the list...If Little Rock were a stock, I'd buy shares in it.”

Coming in 2011 – new South Wing
The 258,000 square-foot South Wing will open much-needed
space for providing the highest standard of pediatric care possible.
The new ED will include telemedicine technology and four trauma
rooms, as well as a dedicated orthopedics suite and a
decontamination unit. In addition, the South Wing will open new
space for the NICU and CVICU to accommodate the growing
demand for their services. An entirely new Hematology/Oncology
unit will open in the South Wing for the state’s pediatric cancer and
blood disorder patients, as will a new inpatient unit dedicated for
care of infants through 3-year-olds.
The project actually will provide
about 100 new patient beds, but
the hospital plans to retire many
that date back more than 40
years. The net increase in
patient beds will be 54. The new
South Wing also will include 56
new exam rooms, as well as 19
new procedural or diagnostic
rooms. A roof garden complete
with benches, Arkansas foliage
and play areas will be open to
patients, families and
Why I chose the UAMS Pediatrics Residency Program: There are many reasons but here are a
few. The attendings are great to work with and are always willing to teach. The residents are very
supportive of each other and are willing to stay late in house to help others with their work. I also
love the hospital itself. It has all the needed facilities and the nurses, respiratory therapists,
nutritionists and the rest of the staff are terrific! And last but not least, everyone in the housestaff
office. They make you feel at home and are willing to help in any way they can!
- PGY-1 resident
What I like best about the UAMS Pediatrics Residency Program: The people. The
residents, staff, and faculty make this place great. I’d be hard-pressed to run out of kind things
to say about the folks I’ve met and worked with here. We’re really well taken care of as
residents, the hospital is great, and there are lots of little (& big) perks that sure help out. If you
ever need a helping hand, someone’s always got your back…even before you ask.
- PGY- 2 resident
Someone wise once told me, “Do your residency in a resident-driven
program, then do your fellowship in a fellow-driven program.” Great
advice I would say, and I think I got the best of both worlds. What I tell
applicants is that there are probably several good places to learn to be a great
pediatrician, but there's no place that's better than ACH.
