PHOENIX CHILDREN’S BREAKS GROUND ON NEW HOSPITAL IN GLENDALE
Phoenix Children’s broke ground today on a new freestanding, three-story hospital in Glendale, Ariz. Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus will offer inpatient care, an emergency department, an outpatient surgery center, and a multi-specialty clinic.
The campus is part of Phoenix Children's long-term strategy to bring much-needed pediatric health services to the West Valley's booming population of families. All told, the health system's expansion efforts in the West Valley – Phoenix Children's Hospital-Arrowhead Campus, Southwest Campus, and Phoenix Children's Sports Medicine Clinic in Avondale – will bring 650 jobs and nearly $200 million to this part of the metro.
“We can’t wait to serve even more families, through more robust services, in this community,” said Robert L. Meyer, president and CEO, Phoenix Children’s. “It’s an important day for us at Phoenix Children’s and for the West Valley. We are grateful for the people and partners who have helped us get here and we look forward to playing a larger role in this vibrant area.”
Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus is located adjacent to the Abrazo Arrowhead Campus at 18701 N. 67th Ave. in Glendale, Ariz., and is expected to open in the spring of 2024. The campus is being built by Kitchell. It represents an investment of $134.7 million and will support 76,000 annual visits.
“We’re so honored to build this new hospital that will be so vital to the West Valley,” said Steve Whitworth, President, Kitchell. “It’s going to be a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility built to last as the region expands.”
When it opens, the Arrowhead Campus will offer 24 inpatient beds, six operating rooms, two minor procedure rooms, 30 emergency bays/trauma rooms, and a 45,000-square-foot 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.
