Abrazo Cave Creek Eyes Mid-Year Opening Date

Construction is now complete on Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital in Cave Creek, AZ. Expected to open in mid-2021, the neighborhood hospital will provide area residents with emergency care and low-acuity surgical services.

The single-story 35,000-square-foot hospital located at 5227 E. Carefree Hwy. features a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room, eight inpatient rooms for overnight stays, an imaging suite for x-ray, ultrasound and CT scans; a laboratory and other services, according to Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP).

“Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital marks our third project with Abrazo Health in the Phoenix area,” said Scott Salyer, regional manager for AP. “Demand for micro hospitals in the Southwest has continued to grow, and our ability to quickly construct and deliver a hospital like this one enables providers to meet their patients’ medical needs closer to home.”

The hospital’s emergency room will be open 24/7 year-round, and staff will work closely with first responders and EMS to serve Cave Creek and North Valley communities.

“Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital will be the community’s hospital for emergency care, low-acuity surgical services and related care,” said Sarah Bird, administrative director.

Construction on the hospital began in January 2020, and it is expected to open for patient care after completing equipment and supply delivery and setup, as well as multiple certifications, hiring and training events.
