A Growing Hub for Quality Health Care Services
Peoria, Arizona has a strong employment base in health care and is quickly becoming a hub for world-renowned care. In 2018, construction began on a new $70 million multi-specialty health center. The 127,000 square foot facility is being constructed by Valleywise Health (formerly Maricopa Integrated Health Systems). The facility is expected to employ at least 300 people in its first year, and is scheduled to open in 2020.
This comes on the heels of the completion of two more medical centers, both of which opened in Peoria in 2017. HonorHealth completed construction of a $10 million facility totaling 25,000 square feet, which brings primary care physicians, specialists, and other services together under one roof. Cigna Medical Group also opened its two story, 60,000 square foot facility on Thunderbird Road, which combines family and internal medicine, a pharmacy, laboratory, and urgent care into one convenient facility.
Plaza del Rio
Peoria is also home to the 185-acre Plaza del Rio health care campus, the largest off-hospital campus medical community in Arizona. The campus is unique, attracting and combining medical office facilities and seven different types of senior living facilities. This campus system allows seniors who are facing medical challenges to live their lives in a setting that complements their needs and desires. Furthermore, physicians, the onsite clinical research organization Pivotal Research, and neighboring Banner Sun Health Boswell Hospital have easy access to a variety of medical services and a built-in market of patients. Five full-service hospitals are within 15 minutes of any part of the city.
Banner Select Peoria is the latest project under construction at Plaza del Rio. Groundbreaking took place in early 2019 with an expected completion date of late summer 2020. When completed, the new hospital will have 56 beds and a focus on medical rehabilitation. The building will occupy 65,870 square feet on three stories. It is being built as a joint venture between Banner Health and Select Medical.
