Dr. Robert H. Fiser, Jr. KIDS FIRST
411 Lentz Drive
Morrilton, AR 72110
KIDS FIRST Morrilton was the first clinic to be established outside of Pulaski County and was originally housed in a renovated wing of the Conway County Hospital (now St Vincent Health Systems St. Anthony’s Medical Center). As KIDS FIRST continued to grow – we moved into four mobile units set up on the hospital grounds while a new building was negotiated with local businessmen. KIDS FIRST moved to the current location in December 1995 (I am not sure this date is correct) with six spacious treatment rooms, playroom, nursing and office spaces. Several of the original staff is still employed.
Dr. Robert Fiser, the UAMS Pediatric Department Chairman at the time, was a Morrilton native and knew that the support of the community and especially the local physicians would assure success of the program. The program prospered with the help of the first CO-MEND council made up of community professionals. The clinic has always enjoyed good community relations and is a member of the Morrilton Area Chamber of Commerce.
KIDS FIRST works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood and special education students.
Donations made through the UAMS Foundation will benefit the children served in Morrilton.
