Paradise Valley Hospital’s emergency department (ED) treats more than 30,000 patients annually. The hospital continues to see an increase in ED patient volume due to the explosive growth in the north valley and the enhanced access to the hospital by the 51 and 101 loop. Our goal is to be the destination of choice for patients and our EMS partners in care.
As a result of this growth, Paradise Valley Hospital completed a $5.8 million expansion of the ED in July of 2004, increasing capacity from 18 beds to 27 beds, and enlarging from 6,000 square feet to 16,000 square feet. In addition to the physical expansion of the ED, the hospital has improved its technology and processes to provide enhanced patient care and service.
