Hacienda Healthcare to break ground on children’s hospital

On Monday, Sept. 22, at 11 a.m., Hacienda HealthCare and RJM construction will host the groundbreaking ceremony for the new 24-bed, 20,900-square-foot children’s hospital in Mesa, Ariz. The hospital, located at 610 W. Jerome Ave., will feature:

  • Four themed patient wings with unique floor cuts and patient room headwalls to synchronize with the themes
  • Four indoor/outdoor healing gardens and family lounge/play areas
  • Architecture to make the building child-friendly, such as bright colors and lights, and windows at children’s height

“Hacienda HealthCare was asked by East Valley physicians, parents, hospital CEOs and health care plans to establish a children’s hospital similar to our Phoenix hospital in this area,” said Hacienda HealthCare President and CEO, Bill Timmons. “We’re thrilled to break ground on this project, and appreciate RJM Construction’s efforts to get the hospital completed as quickly as possible.”

Construction will be complete in the summer of 2015. In addition to Hacienda HealthCare and RJM Construction, project partners include architect Devenney Group, Ltd. and construction manager CORE Construction.

Central Arizona College 
Maricopa Campus
Developer: Pinal County Community College District
Contractor: CORE Construction
Architect: SmithGroupJJR
Size: 76,800 SF
Location: 17945 N. Regent Dr., Maricopa
Completed: July 2013

Central Arizona College created a new campus in the City of Maricopa that brings sustainability and education to the forefront. The three initial campus buildings are sustainable “academic sheds” designed to keep the students cool from the hot desert sun throughout the year. The building materials are utilitarian, natural, low-maintenance and recycled. Nothing is wasted for aesthetics. There is one central water plant that feeds the three new buildings on campus. It’s designed in a manner that considers the campus’ future growth and saves water consumption by 28 percent. The master-planned campus will be 10 times its current size by completion. The innovative and transformative research facility will serve as a vital tool for recruiting top scientists and engineers, and bring the seeds of change to a “bedroom community boomtown gone bust,” as the New York Times once published.
