Psychiatric Research Institute
The UAMS Psychiatric Research Institute will consolidate all psychiatric clinicians, researchers and educators in one building. Currently, the department is scattered among 13 locations in central Arkansas, serving as many as 1,200 patients daily.
The facility will include outpatient and inpatient units. The building will be five stories, approximately 100,000 square feet and incorporate 40 inpatient beds, research, clinical, educational and administrative space.
The Dierks Research Laboratories will honor the gift of Fred and Louise Dierks, while the Walker Family Clinic will honor the gift from the Pat and Willard Walker Charitable Foundation.
The PRI will connect to the hospital addition and the new parking deck on the west side.
