UAMS north

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2008 at 3:47 PM

An article in the Northwest Arkansas Times says UAMS is going to need a few more millions to complete and operate its Northwest Arkansas campus in the old Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville.

Peter Kohler, the UAMS vice chancellor in charge of the getting the new campus off the ground, says operating the facility will cost $5 million to $8 million a year. It's got $3.1 million for start-up in hand. "Kohler said he's looking to philanthropy as a way to raise funds," the article says.

Used to, all those dollars from Northwest Arkansas used to come to the med center in Little Rock. Wonder what the development people over at 4301 W. Markham are thinking?
