Children are at the center of everything we do. Arkansas Children’s (https://www.archildrens.org/contentpage.aspx?nd=919) is the only hospital system in the state solely dedicated to caring for children, which allows our organization to uniquely shape the landscape of pediatric care in Arkansas.
As Champions for Children, Arkansas Children’s Hospital has joined the elite 6 percent of hospitals in the world that have Magnet Status (http://www.archildrens.org/contentpage.aspx?nd=2489) . Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is the most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient outcomes.
Arkansas Children’s is driven by four core values: safety, teamwork, compassion and excellence. These values inform every decision and every action, from the aggressive pursuit of zero hospital infections to treating each family with dignity, kindness and concern. These core values fundamentally guide our work at Arkansas Children’s.
For more than a century, Arkansas Children’s has continuously evolved to meet the unique needs of the children of Arkansas and beyond. Today, Arkansas Children’s is more than just a hospital treating sick kids – our services include two hospitals, a pediatric research institute, a foundation, clinics, education and outreach, all with an unyielding commitment to making children better today and healthier tomorrow.
Arkansas Children’s reaches more children in more ways where they live, learn and play. Our system includes a 336-bed hospital in Little Rock with the state’s only pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center, burn center, Level 4 neonatal intensive care and pediatric intensive care, and research institute as well as a nationally-recognized transport service.
