The 127,000-square-foot health clinic will be built on 20 acres at Grand Avenue and Cotton Crossing.
The new $70 million project will feature an urgent care, dental clinic, dialysis clinic and a procedural platform that includes four operating rooms, two major procedure rooms, pre-operative and recovery bays and onsite sterile processing as reported by The Phoenix Business Journal.
When the West Valley Primary and Specialty Care Center opens in early 2020, it will employ 320 staff with an expected daily volume of about 255 patients and visitors.
Citing the need to meet the demand for healthcare services in the west valley, Steve Purves, president and CEO of MIHS, said the expansion will offer an improved patient and visitor experience. “This is truly a momentous occasion for us – the first project in our Care Reimagined initiative that will fulfill our commitment to provide ‘exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time’ to the residents of the west valley and beyond,” he said.
The groundbreaking for the center was held Monday, January 29.
This new facility will not just provide access to high quality and compassionate medical services to our residents. It will help to fuel the West Valley’s economic engine as it becomes increasingly involved in this vibrant community as an employer and civic partner.
This is big plus for our community. We’ve all heard about the state’s doctor shortage, and having a medical professional training facility in your backyard is a great way to attract the best and brightest.
