Washington Regional and UAMS Partner for Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic

Washington Regional, in partnership with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), has opened the Washington Regional Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic. The clinic, located inside the Women and Infants Center on the Washington Regional campus in Fayetteville, brings the expertise of UAMS’ maternal fetal medicine specialists to patients in Northwest Arkansas. The Washington Regional Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic provides assessment, diagnosis, and management of high-risk pregnancies, including problems associated with multiple births, heart disease, gestational diabetes, physical and genetic fetal abnormalities, and other conditions.

The clinic is staffed by four maternal fetal medicine physician specialists from UAMS and a local nurse practitioner. They are Nafisa Dajani, MD, Dawn Hughes, MD, Everett Magann, MD, Adam Sandlin, MD, and Alissa Scherer, APRN.

“This collaboration provides Northwest Arkansas women with high-risk pregnancies access to the largest team of board-certified maternal fetal medicine specialists in the state,” said Washington Regional President and CEO Larry Shackelford. “Our mission at Washington Regional is to improve the health of people in the communities we serve through compassionate, high-quality care. This new partnership with UAMS helps us further that mission, and Washington Regional is proud to offer this specialized care here in Northwest Arkansas.”
