ADOLFSON & PETERSON CONSTRUCTION COMPLETES ABRAZO CAVE CREEK HOSPITAL
Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, has completed construction on Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital in Cave Creek, Arizona.
Expected to open in mid-2021, the neighborhood hospital will provide area residents with emergency care and low-acuity surgical services. The single-story, 35,000 square-foot hospital located at 5227 E. Carefree Highway features a 13-bed emergency department; an operating room; eight inpatient rooms for overnight stays; an imaging suite for x-ray, ultrasound, and CT scans; a laboratory and other services.
“Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital marks our third project with Abrazo Health in the Phoenix area,” said Scott Salyer, regional manager for AP. “Demand for micro hospitals in the Southwest has continued to grow, and our ability to quickly construct and deliver a hospital like this one enables providers to meet their patients’ medical needs closer to home.”
The hospital’s emergency room will be open 24/7 year-round, and staff will work closely with first responders and EMS to serve Cave Creek and North Valley communities.
“We are excited to expand Abrazo’s services in the North Valley,” said Sarah Bird, RN, BSN, administrative director. “Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital will be the community’s hospital for emergency care, low-acuity surgical services, and related care.”
Construction on the hospital began in January 2020, and it is expected to open for patient care after completing equipment and supply delivery and setup, as well as multiple certifications, hiring, and training events.
Founded in 1946, AP has maintained an office in Phoenix for the past 30 years. AP also provided general contractor services on Abrazo Health’s Surprise and Mesa hospitals, as well as Carondelet Marana Hospital in Marana. Other current and past health care projects in the region include Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital Phoenix and Canyon State Veterinary Specialties in Peoria.
