Arkansas Children's earlier this month announced a $318 million expansion to include new construction, redesign and additional staff at its Little Rock and Springdale hospitals.

Why it matters: The hospital is in a position to serve as a hub for pediatric care for a four-state region. The development project aims to help kids who live in NWA and nearby out-of-state areas get the care they need closer to home, president and CEO Marcy Doderer told Axios.
