For 35 years The BridgeWay has been connecting with communities throughout Arkansas and beyond. The BridgeWay offers a continuum of services designed to help children, adolescents and adults who are experiencing behavioral, emotional or addictive problems that can lead to fractured lives. Our team of professionals includes board-certified child/adolescent and adult psychiatrists, master’s-level clinical therapists, nurses and mental health associates who are here to help people reconnect with their families, friends and employers so that they may lead productive lives. Tucked within the wooded hills of Central Arkansas, The BridgeWay is just moments away from the major highways that unite Arkansans throughout the state. Founded in 1983 and accredited by The Joint Commission, our quiet campus has retained much of the cozy charm and character that existed then. The BridgeWay is part of the UHS network which is on the list of Fortune 500 for “World’s Most Admired Companies”. UHS benefits program offers a diverse range of healthcare, life insurance and disability benefits to help meet the needs of UHS employees and their families. These benefits include medical, dental, vision, insurance/income protection, retirement/savings plans and flexible spending accounts. UHS has been transforming healthcare for nearly 40 years.
