Mid-year opening planned for Abrazo Cave Creek HospitalMar 24, 2021
CAVE CREEK – As construction heads toward the finish line, much is happening behind the scenes while Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital officials prepare to serve the community’s medical needs.
Equipment and supply delivery and setup continue as contractors install IT systems and other specialized items in the hospital. Staff hiring and training, and various certifications and licensing also must be completed before the hospital can open.
“Abrazo Health has hospitals in many parts of the Valley, and we are excited to begin providing care for Cave Creek and surrounding communities. As a fully-licensed hospital, we will be able to offer services beyond what is found in an urgent care or freestanding ER,” said Sarah Bird, RN, BSN, administrative director.
Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is expected to open this year as a fully licensed hospital, open 24 hours a day. It will include a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room for minor surgical procedures, and eight inpatient rooms for observation and overnight stays, along with diagnostic imaging, laboratory and other services to meet patient needs.
The single-story hospital at 5227 E. Carefree Highway will be capable of caring for patients of all ages, and staff will work closely with first responders and EMS to serve Cave Creek and North Valley communities.
