Conway Regional continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 throughout our state and in Central Arkansas. Like other hospitals across the state and nation, we have noted an increase in the number of COVID positive patients and continue to adapt our environment to ensure our patients receive the best care.
In the past few weeks, COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have continued to increase across the state. To best prepare to continue meeting the needs of the community, Conway Regional has expanded non-COVID bed capacity by moving some of our inpatient operations to the Conway Regional Rehabilitation Hospital. The rehabilitation hospital is appropriately staffed and equipped with extensive precautions in place to provide safe and effective care.
“This is not a bed capacity issue for us,” said Matt Troup, President and CEO of Conway Regional. “This is about bed placement. Expanding our capacity for COVID patients and beds at CRMC means we will potentially displace non-COVID patients. This plan allows us to expand total beds to meet current and future needs of our community, centralize resources, put patients in the appropriate level of care, all while providing the best possible care.”
Conway Regional remains committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to the communities we serve. We appreciate the outpouring of support from our community and our patients, as well as the dedication and hard work from our team, as we continue to adapt to provide the comprehensive care our patients deserve.
