Arizona General Hospital to Open in the Phoenix-area Early 2015, Create 300 New Jobs

 

PHOENIX (June 4, 2014) – Arizona General Hospital announced today it is opening a boutique, full-service health care facility early next year in Laveen, an area southwest of downtown Phoenix. The 39,000-square-foot hospital will have 16 inpatient rooms, two state-of-the-art operating rooms, an emergency room, a high-tech laboratory and a full radiology suite.

Arizona General Hospital will provide Phoenix-area residents with 24/7 access to emergency medical care. The new hospital will also bring 300 new jobs and plans to invest $75 million over the next three years. The American College of Emergency Physicians has identified a need in the United States, and specifically Arizona, for additional access to emergency medical care.

“We are pleased to announce that we are building this new, state-of-the-art  hospital and look forward to delivering high-quality medical care to Laveen and the surrounding communities,” said William Comer, Arizona General Hospital’s Chief Executive Officer. “This hospital will fill a critical need for this growing urban area.”

"Arizona General Hospital is creating new jobs, adding valuable capital investments and opening a state-of-the-art hospital that will have a positive impact not only in Laveen, but throughout the region," said Mayor Greg Stanton.

"Laveen residents will soon have convenient access to full-service emergency and medical care, not only filling the need for quality health care, but also quality jobs and further investment in our growing community," added Councilman Michael Nowakowski, District 7.

Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO Sandra Watson said the hospital’s bold commitment is an important component to building a sustainable, health care ecosystem throughout the state.

“Arizona General Hospital’s infusion of capital, new jobs and the development of this critical care facility is important for the continued growth of the region, and builds momentum for our state as a leader in health care and science innovation,” said Watson.

Arizona General Hospital, which will be located at 7171 S. 51st. Avenue, will be capable of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures. The hospital will be equipped with the latest technologies.
