JONESBORO - In partnership with Haag Brown Medical Holdings, NEA Baptist announces a major upgrade in services to the corner of Red Wolf Blvd. and Apache Dr. with the addition of Urgent Care PLUS, an 18,000 square foot ultra-modern facility.

The new development will feature Red Wolf Clinic Primary Care (currently known as Stadium Clinic), Outpatient Imaging services, and an Urgent Care PLUS all in one central location. The service upgrade will provide patients with easier access to a higher level of care without the need for an expensive Emergency Department visit.

As a leader in innovation and care integration, NEA Baptist will be the first in the region to offer X-Ray, CT, and Ultrasound services in an Urgent Care setting. Studies show that radiology exams are ordered in over 10 percent of urgent care visits. By providing these imaging services in one location, patients can receive a more convenient experience through integrated care. The new layout will also allow a more efficient process and workflow in family medicine by using an on-stage, off-stage concept creating an overall better patient experience.

The Urgent Care PLUS facility will house state-of-the-art medical technology offering more robust on-site lab services needed to quickly diagnose and treat patients. The new construction will serve as the largest project NEA Baptist has completed in the area since the development of the main medical campus on East Johnson in 2014.

This signalized corner sits at the base of the I-555 exit onto Red Wolf Blvd. earning the attention of over 33,000 cars per day. The property is connected to multiple continued care medical businesses along Apache Drive including Southern Pharmacy, ArKids Pediatric Day Center, Arkansas Continued Care Hospital, Apache Drive Children’s Clinic, NEA Baptist Dialysis Clinic, and St. Elizabeth’s Place.

Haag Brown Medical Holdings is also developing a free-standing Southern Pharmacy just south of its current residence within the NEA Baptist Clinic - Stadium Urgent Care facility, creating individualized care facilities for both businesses. Stone Bridge Construction will work as the general contractor for both projects.
