Abrazo opens new Cave Creek hospitalJul 26, 2021
Location near Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road offers care closer to home
CAVE CREEK – Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is now open, offering emergency and surgical care closer to home for area residents. The neighborhood hospital at 5227 E. Carefree Highway serves patients of all ages and includes a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room and eight inpatient rooms.
“Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is in an ideal location for ease of access and was planned with an emphasis on safe, quality medical care,” said Administrator Sarah Bird, RN. “We are able to offer shorter ER wait times, and will have 24/7 emergency and general surgery coverage.”
Staff have been developing strong relationships with local EMS providers and look forward to serving the community side-by-side with first responders, said Bird.
Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is smaller in scale than a typical general hospital, yet offers surgical services, a full emergency department, inpatient care, ultrasound, x-ray and CT scan, laboratory, pharmacy and other services, she noted.
“Patients with abdominal pain, sprains and broken bones, lacerations, pneumonia and flu are typical of the types of conditions we expect to see in the emergency department,” explained Dr. Sara Beckett, medical director of Emergency Services at Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital.
“As an Emergency Medicine physician, it is an honor to be involved with this new hospital. The Town of Cave Creek and its residents will surely benefit from having medical care nearby. Minutes matter in an emergency. We will strive to keep ER wait times short, and to provide safe, high quality care. It’s about providing the right care in the right place,” said Dr. Beckett.
“We are very excited to open the doors of our Cave Creek Hospital. The ribbon cutting ceremony that we hosted was very well received and attended by the Cave Creek community and first responders,” added Naman Mahajan, CEO of Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital and Abrazo Scottsdale Campus.
“Many of our leaders and team members have dedicated a significant part of the last year making Cave Creek a reality. I could not be prouder of the team who worked diligently around the clock to ensure a successful opening.”
