UAMS Open for Business Day of Aug. 31 Razorback Game

By Amy Widner

UAMS will be open and will see patients at their regularly scheduled times. Patients should allow extra time to get to their appointments because of heavy game-related traffic. Though classes for UAMS’ five colleges and Graduate School will be dismissed at noon, the majority of the 8,000 employees who work on campus will be at work.

Parking on campus will be reserved for patients and employees and there will be no game-day parking available before or during the game for the public at any of the UAMS parking decks or lots. Only employees who show ID or patients who have appointments will be allowed on campus.

UAMS is the state’s only health sciences university, with colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Professions and Public Health; a graduate school; hospital; northwest Arkansas regional campus; statewide network of regional centers; and six institutes: the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, Harvey & Bernice Jones Eye Institute, Psychiatric Research Institute, Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging and Translational Research Institute. It is the only adult Level 1 trauma center in the state. UAMS has 2,727 students, 822 medical residents and five dental residents. It is the state’s largest public employer with more than 10,000 employees, including 1,200 physicians who provide care to patients at UAMS, its regional campuses throughout the state, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the VA Medical Center and Baptist Health.
