Phoenix Children’s has announced plans to build a new freestanding, three-story hospital in Glendale. Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus will offer inpatient care, an emergency department, an outpatient surgery center and a multi-specialty clinic.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus represents an investment of $134.7M and will support 76,000 annual visits. This is the third West Valley project Phoenix Children’s has announced in the last six months, with total investments nearing $200M.
In March, the health system announced it will break ground on the Southwest Campus in Avondale, a freestanding emergency department and expanded specialty clinic that will open in 2023 at the site of Phoenix Children’s Southwest Valley Specialty and Urgent Care Center. Phoenix Children’s Sports Medicine Clinic – Avondale is expected to open later this year to provide physical therapy, rehabilitation and education services to the West Valley’s young athletes.
A complement to the services at the Southwest Campus, Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus will offer 24 inpatient beds, six operating rooms, two minor procedure rooms, 30 emergency bays/trauma rooms, and a 45KSF medical office building to house orthopedics, neurology, cardiology, oncology, and numerous other specialty services. Architectural plans are designed to accommodate future growth as community needs arise, including an additional 24 inpatient beds.
The West Valley is projected to grow at twice the national rate in just five years, while the pediatric population is estimated to increase from 400,000 today to nearly 500,000 by 2030. All told, Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus, Southwest Campus and Sports Medicine Clinic will bring more than 650 jobs to the West Valley.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus is located on the north end of the Abrazo Arrowhead Campus at 18701 N. 67th Avenue in Glendale and is expected to open in the spring of 2024.
Phoenix Children’s now offers services at more than 40 locations throughout Arizona, with additional expansion plans in development to keep pace with Maricopa County’s booming population growth. Phoenix Children’s Hospital – East Valley, which is currently under construction, will provide a similar array of services as the Northwest Valley hospital. (Source)
