Pediatric subspecialty care doesn't get any closer than the Centers for Children. We're bringing pediatric subspecialty healthcare to the front door of families in northeast Arkansas for clinic visits and follow-up medical care.
The Centers for Children in Jonesboro is an expansion of the regional programs of Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Department of Pediatrics.
First launched in 2007 in Lowell, the Centers for Children program is helping to link a statewide system of healthcare accessibility for children needing subspecialty and developmental care. The Centers for Children in Jonesboro, which opened in August 2012, offers a Neurology Clinic and a
Cardiology Clinic. Both clinics were previously housed at The Children's Clinic of Jonesboro.
The Centers for Children in Jonesboro is really an additional program, expanding what the system has provided to northeast Arkansas. Dr. Douglas Seglem, a faculty member of the UAMS Department of Pediatrics Section of Neonatology and at Arkansas Children's Hospital, serves as medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Bernards Medical Center.
