Some healthcare systems’ new construction and renovation projects have relatively modest, short-term goals, such as building a new facility or renovating an existing one to expand reach or improve service. Then there is the program undertaken by Valleywise Health in Phoenix in 2014.
The system set a goal to transform healthcare in the Phoenix area by expanding its facilities, resources and services, according to Health Facilities Management. A bond measure approved by Maricopa County voters in 2014 has funded multiple construction and renovation projects.
Upcoming community health centers include:
- Community Health Center – West Maryvale scheduled to open later this year.
- Community Health Center – Mesa scheduled to open in early 2022.
One set of projects are occurring at the site of Roosevelt Hospital, where a new medical center tower is being built. Additional work at the Roosevelt Hospital campus includes renovating part of the existing hospital warehouse to provide a new Central Utility Plant, providing mechanical upgrades for the existing, fully occupied behavioral health hospital and constructing a new support services building, plus a complete hardscape and landscape revitalization.See the latest posts on our homepage
