Local officials and business leaders gathered recently to break ground on the new Arkansas Urology facility in Conway.
The new facility, located on Superior Drive, is scheduled to open in early 2020. It incorporates green building concepts such as sunscreens, high-efficiency glazing, LED lighting and high-efficiency HVAC units. The clinic will provide comprehensive urological treatment services to men and women of all ages.
Arkansas Urology acquired Conway Urology in 2017, and since the merger, two additional physicians have joined Arkansas Urology to practice out of the Conway clinic, located at 495 Hogan Lane.
“Arkansas Urology is continuously dedicated to providing solutions to needs not just within the central Arkansas community, but the entire state,” said Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology. “There was a recognized need to fill a demand in the Conway community with an expanded clinic so our providers and their care teams could not only maintain the current high-quality care our patients have come to expect, but add additional square footage to offer the latest in innovation and urological techniques to patients as well. Arkansas Urology is thrilled to be able to offer this new space to Conway and the surrounding community.”
During the groundbreaking ceremony, Senator Jason Rapert, James Walden, Director of Planning and Development for the city of Conway, District 70 Representative, Spencer Hawks, a representative from Commercial Realty, LLC, Congressman French Hill’s office representative Chelsea Perry, Conway Chamber of Commerceand local community members gathered at the construction site.
“With three urologists and two APNs, we needed more space to provide our patients with the best care possible. Our new clinic will aide in a much more efficient and ultimately pleasant patient experience,” said Dr. Jeff Marotte, physician-partner practicing at Arkansas Urology’s Conway clinic. “I couldn’t be more pleased with the addition of my two new partners who share my commitment in serving patients from northcentral Arkansas, and our entire staff is very excited to see this project come to fruition. We have two great hospitals in Conway that have made great structural improvements to provide a modern, efficient and compassionate setting. We will soon join them with a new clinic offering the state of the art urological care patients deserve.”
