A new clinic of Arkansas Children's Hospital has been named the Circle of Friends Clinic in recognition of that group's $1.8 million gift to the hospital.
The Circle of Friends is a statewide organization that supports the hospital.
The clinic previously was called the Arkansas Children's Hospital South Clinic. It opened last year and expects to serve more than 22,000 patients in its first year.
An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in late May.
Arkansas Children's Hospital is the only pediatric medical center in Arkansas and one of the largest in the United States.
