Women’s Resource Center
Women deserve a special place where they can feel comfortable shopping
for their healthcare product needs. A place where they can ask the
most personal questions and hear the most professional answers.
A place where they feel understood and respected.
The Women's Resource Center at Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock is just that – a place created especially for women,
staffed entirely by women, offering healthcare products to women.

Breast Cancer Support Group
This disease will strike more than 200,000 times this year and claim
more than 40,000 lives. It's often assumed that coping with the
shock of a breast cancer diagnosis is the most difficult part of
living with breast cancer, but women who have had breast cancer
know that life is often hardest after treatment ends. The Bosom Buddies Support Group, in partnership with the American Cancer Society,
meets the second Thursday of each month. This informal group setting allows women with breast cancer to share their personal experience.
To talk to one of our consultants, call (501) 202-7386 or stop

Hickingbotham Outpatient Center on the BAPTIST
HEALTH Medical Center-Little Rock campus and is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm.
