The new hospital tower, located in Phoenix, Arizona, will be approximately 673,000 square feet, 10 stories tall and will feature the same services for which the health care system has come to be known.
Funding for the new medical center came as a result of the response of voters approving Proposition 480, which provided Valleywise Health (formerly Maricopa Integrated Health System) more than $900 million to transform the Valley’s public teaching hospital and safety net system of care. Beyond the health care services Valleywise provides to the community, it is also the state’s only public teaching hospital. This new facility will further the ability for future physicians and nurses to get the training they need through new devices and upgraded amenities.
“At the core of all we do, we keep the patient, their care and experience top of mind,” said Steve Purves, CEO at Valleywise Health. “In building this new medical center, we are honoring the request of our community members and are so proud to take this monumental leap to serve the health care needs of those who need it most and thankful to all those who made this possible.”
