LITTLE ROCK - The UAMS Health Women's Center opened bringing the best of women's health services from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) to one convenient Midtown location.
The new location is at 6119 Midtown Ave., just off Interstate 630 and University Avenue near Target. All women's health services previously at UAMS Health's Financial Center Parkway, Freeway Medical Tower and 8th and Cedar clinics have moved to this location.
Services include care for routine pregnancies and high-risk pregnancy care from the only maternal-fetal medicine specialists in Central Arkansas. The center offers Arkansas' only CenteringPregnancy Program, in which groups of women with similar due dates gather for extra prenatal care, education and support. Gynecology services include routine checkups, labs, ultrasounds and a uterine fibroid clinic. Menopause treatment services are all inclusive and tailored to the individual. Genetic and nutritional counseling, along with behavioral health services and prenatal classes compliment care.
The Women's Center also houses the Arkansas Fetal Diagnosis and Management Program, which provides coordinated, compassionate, and evidenced-based care for pregnancy and newborn cases complicated by congenital birth defects or genetic disease.
The center includes the UAMS Health Gender Clinic, which provides hormonal and surgical treatment to transgender and gender-nonconforming patients, and the UAMS Vulvar Clinic, where women with vulvar and vaginal disorders are provided the latest treatments.
The Women's Center building features 46 exam rooms, eight ultrasound rooms, and a dedicated patient education space. The center also offers virtual visits according to patient preference.
