McCarthy Building Companies Inc. recently broke ground on the new hospital to be built on the HonorHealth Sonoran Medical Center campus at Interstate 17 and Dove Valley Road in north Phoenix. Today, the 210,000-square-foot campus expansion project marks the commencement of construction on the 155,000-square-foot, three-story inpatient hospital that will initially add nearly 40 new patient beds with the ability to expand as needs for services increase.
The hospital will bring the north Phoenix community a new 24-hour emergency department; comprehensive obstetrical and gynecological care, which includes labor delivery services with a Level II neonatal intensive care unit; orthopedic and spine services as well as a state-of-the-art surgical unit. The hospital is expected to open September 2020.
The project’s design and construction team have been in pre-construction phase for 14 months, collaborating with the owner and subcontractors through the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process, which allows the project to be constructed with more certainty of achieving the owner’s vision and interactive problem-solving by the entire team whereby challenges are addressed through group-think.
“With the patient experience being our priority, the new hospital on the HonorHealth Sonoran Medical Center campus is bringing significant innovations in design and construction to the community it will serve,” said Chris Nickle, executive vice president of McCarthy Building Companies Southwest region. “Thanks to our intensive IPD collaboration with the owner, designer and construction team, we’ve been able to provide creative and highly effective solutions that address logistical, functional and cost-related challenges and are ensuring that the community will be well-served for many years.”
McCarthy Building Companies is the general contractor. Devenney Group Architects is the architect on the project and CBRE is construction manager.
