Construction set for Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital

Feb 5, 2020

New microhospital will serve North Valley communities

Abrazo Cave CreekCAVE CREEK – Abrazo Health is set to begin construction of a new small-scale community hospital near the intersection of Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road. Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital will focus on emergency care and surgical services.

Expected to open in 2021, Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is a new type of “neighborhood” hospital, sometimes referred to as a “microhospital,” designed with an emphasis on quality care, convenience, efficiency and short ER wait times.

The single-story facility at the southwest corner of Carefree Highway and 53rd Street will include a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room and eight inpatient rooms, along with diagnostic imaging and additional services.

Construciton“This type of hospital meets a need for convenient access to medical care beyond what’s available at an urgent care or freestanding emergency center. The hospital will offer a 24/7 ER and the ability to perform surgical procedures with around-the-clock general surgery, hospitalist and emergency physician coverage,” said hospital CEO Ed Staren.

The Cave Creek hospital will be Abrazo’s third neighborhood hospital. Abrazo Mesa Hospital opened in October 2019 and Abrazo Surprise Hospital is expected to open later this year. Each is closely integrated with Abrazo’s larger sister hospitals, medical group and community physicians.

“We’re anxious to begin providing care for our neighbors and friends in the Cave Creek area,” said Staren. “Providing quality medical care and excellent patient satisfaction are among our top priorities, and we want our ER waiting times to be among the shortest they can possibly be.”
