In a move that will expand access to pediatric healthcare, Phoenix Children’s plans to build a new freestanding, three-story hospital in Glendale, Arizona. Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus, will offer inpatient care, an emergency department, outpatient surgery center and multi-specialty clinic.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus represents an investment of $134.7 million 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 $200 million.
Rending of Phoenix Children’s Southwest Campus in Avondale, Arizona.
In March, the health system announced it will break ground on the Southwest Campus in Avondale, Arizona, a freestanding ED 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 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.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Arrowhead Campus is expected to open in the spring of 2024.
