Baptist Health To Open New Urgent Care Centers In North Little Rock, Bryant

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – With the opening of two new urgent care centers – one in North Little Rock and one in Bryant – Baptist Health continues to expand access to health care and change how that care is delivered. Both are key focuses and part of the healthcare system’s efforts to improve the health of all Arkansans.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Baptist Health to expand services to residents of central Arkansas,” said Troy Wells, president and CEO of Baptist Health. “Providing expanded access to services for urgent but not emergent patient needs is one way we’re achieving our strategic focuses for the communities we serve.”

Partnering with Urgent Team, of Nashville, TN, one of the largest independent operators of urgent and family care centers in the southeast, Baptist Health is set to open these two urgent care centers next week. Baptist Health Urgent Care-North Little Rock, located at 3550 Springhill Drive in North Little Rock, will open Monday, Dec. 28. Baptist Health Urgent Care-Bryant, located at 3304 Commonwealth Drive in Bryant, will open later that same week on Wednesday, Dec. 30.

“We’re honored to partner with such a highly respected healthcare organization. Our goal is to meet the growing patient expectation for quality care delivered in a convenient location at an affordable price,” said Tom Dent, CEO of Urgent Team.

Baptist Health’s expansion into urgent care will provide convenient, unscheduled access to care for patients as well as support Baptist Health physicians who seek to provide an after-hours option to their patients. While a person’s primary care provider (PCP) should be their first choice for care since the physician knows the patient’s entire medical history, sometimes immediate care is needed when the PCP isn’t available.

Urgent care is also a quicker and less expensive way to get care for pain or conditions that are nonlife-threatening instead of going to an emergency room.

No appointment is needed and patients are seen on a walk-in-basis at Baptist Health Urgent Care centers for a variety of medical needs such as:


•Bites, Stings and Allergic Reactions

•Diarrhea, Nausea and Vomiting

•Ear and Eye Infections

•Flu, Colds and Viral Illnesses



•Skin Conditions

•Sprains, Strains and Broken Bones

•Urinary Tract Infections

Both Baptist Health Urgent Care-North Little Rock and Baptist Health Urgent Care-Bryant will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m. Community open houses will be held at later dates in January.

Baptist Health is the state’s most comprehensive healthcare system. With more than 175 points of access, including eight hospitals, Baptist Health is committed to delivering “All Our Best” in healthcare to the people of Arkansas.
