New Micro-Hospital Part of Trend Offering Care Closer to Communities

Abrazo Health is set to begin construction on a new small-scale community hospital in Cave Creek, Arizona.  The new Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital will focus on emergency and surgical services, with rooms for patients needing overnight care.

Expected to open in 2021, Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is a neighborhood hospital, sometimes referred to as a micro-hospital, designed with an emphasis on quality medical care, convenience, efficiency and short ER wait times.

The single-story, approximately 35,000-square-foot facility will include a 13-bed ED, an operating room and eight inpatient rooms, along with additional services.

When completed, the hospital is expected to create approximately 50 jobs. General contractor for the hospital is Adolfson & Peterson Construction; the facility was designed by E4H Architects.
