Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas is located in Rogers, Arkansas. In 2015, Mercy asked Bates to study the needs of the community and provide a master plan. Bates has since gone through programming, design, and construction documents on an 8-story tower. It will include 36 cardiac inpatient beds, 17 NICU beds, and 14 pediatric patient rooms on the upper floors while the lower floors will house diagnostic and testing services. The 3rd floor surgery platform will be expanded to include 4 new ORs, 4 shelled ORs, a 24-bed PACU, and 34 pre/post private rooms.

The 2nd floor expansion includes 1 new cath lab, 3 shelled rooms, 2 new CT rooms, 5 ultrasound rooms, and 26 pre/post private rooms for the cardiology department. The 1st floor renovation and expansion includes updates to central sterile processing, clinical engineering, material management, loading dock, EVS, pharmacy and laboratory, patient access, pre admit testing, conference center, and renovated servery and café. The next phase of the project includes a future ED expansion and fit out of 72 patient rooms on the 6th and 7th floors.
