UAMS Kids First in Pine Bluff clinic began operations in 1993 in a small building provided by Jefferson Regional Medical Center. The first location had only four treatment rooms, so it was a great surprise when local businessman Don Ritchie offered to build a structure just for UAMS Kids First.
The new clinic, with eight treatment rooms, therapy areas, nursing station and offices for administration was welcomed by all. In 2005 a new wing was added to accommodate three additional treatment rooms, new nurse’s station, kitchen and large indoor playroom. In addition the clinic enjoys a large playground area for all ages.
Today the clinic in Pine Bluff serves 90+ children from Jefferson county and surrounding areas and employs more than 45 staff and contractors from the community.
UAMS Kids First in Pine Bluff works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood and special education students.
