More than two years of planning with UHS design directors, clinical staff from other facilities in Arkansas, and operators of several area hospitals went into the design of Springwoods Behavioral Health, which was one of the first new behavioral health facilities built for Universal Health Services. The intent was to design a facility that could be easily modified for different sites and patient mixes. Each element --- bed units, education, outpatient day hospital --- can vary its size based on a particular area’s need. With a simple expansion the hospital can add 40 beds. Each of the key departments is also set up for growth, including administration, day hospital, dietary and education.
