State's Alternative Care Sites Scheduled To Begin Accepting COVID-19 Patients Next Week

Baptist Health
The alternative care sites are going to be located at existing Baptist Health facilities in Little Rock and Van Buren.

As hospitalizations for COVID-19 throughout Arkansas remain at all time highs, the state and its healthcare partners are preparing for the continued upward trend in cases by opening two alternative care sites next week. The facilities, which will provide 124 additional beds, will be located in Little Rock and Van Buren and will mostly be used to care for low-acuity COVID-19 patients.
