Clinic Director: Rhonda Pattillo, M.Ed.
The decision to begin a UAMS Kids First clinic in Pocahontas was strengthened by strong local interest and emphasized by the unanimous support of people who attended a large community meeting held at Black River College.
The original UAMS Kids First was donated by a local manufacturing company. UAMS Kids First relocated to a new location in the mid-1990s in a building designed for children and built by local business interests. In 2009, the clinic moved to the current location–allowing expansion to seven treatment rooms, playroom and offices – located just down the road from the previous building.
UAMS Kids First works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood, special education, and child development associate students.
