The Emergency Department provides full-service on a 24-hour basis with in-house faculty in attendance at all times, and it is JCAHO level I accredited.

Arkansas Children’s Hospital
Arkansas Children’s Hospital houses the busiest emergency department in the state with almost 50,000 annual patient visits, and is part of the only Arkansas hospital system devoted entirely to the care of children (Arkansas Children’s also has a hospital in Northwest Arkansas). It is staffed by Board-Certified pediatricians on a 24-hour basis. It is the primary site for the pediatric, PICU and emergency transport rotations in the Emergency Medicine Residency Program. As interns, residents rotate on the Pediatric wards admit team for two weeks followed by two weeks of ACH ED experience. The second and third year residents have continuous pediatric emergency medicine experience in the ACH ER (two to four shifts per block) throughout their remaining stay in the program. As second years, they also rotate through the PICU. Third year residents have the opportunity to complete a transport rotation with Angel One, the pediatric transport service which serves Arkansas and surrounding areas, during their ICU selective block.
For over 80 years, Baptist Health has delivered quality healthcare to the citizens of Arkansas. With more than 175 points of access – including seven Arkansas hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, family clinics, therapy and wellness centers – Baptist Health is committed to delivering quality healthcare to the people of Arkansas.
