Adelante Healthcare officially opens another facility in Mesa

Adelante Healthcare, a provider of sustainable healthcare for patients throughout the Valley, officially opened its seventh location, at 1705 W. Main St. in Mesa.

The grand opening celebration included official ribbon-cutting, tours of the state-of-the-art facility, music and refreshments and beverages.

“We are ecstatic to announce the opening of our brand new health center in Mesa,” said Avein Saaty-Tafoya, chief executive officer of Adelante Healthcare. “This facility will not only provide high quality primary and preventive health services to individuals throughout the East Valley, it will also be a community meeting resource, provide nutritionists, a pharmacy, and lab all within a peaceful, welcoming environment, open to all.”

Adelante Healthcare Mesa will provide family medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, internal medicine, and dental care. It will also have a healthy café in its lobby offering a full coffee bar and grab-and-go items for breakfast and lunch. The new location will replace the current health center practice now operating at 2204 S. Dobson Rd., Suite 101.

“Our new site is slated for LEED Platinum interiors certification, the first community health center in the nation to achieve this designation. It’s also the first comprehensive health center on the Metro Light Rail,” Saaty-Tafoya said.

“We have incorporated design researched to create a healing environment. This is a truly specially built environment of care that will transform how patients access services and will improve patients’ experience.”

The new facility uses earth-friendly design elements such as low-VOC paint, recycled materials, energy-saving technologies, responsible waste disposal, green-living outreach and education. Patients will also find light-filled spaces in vibrant colors, smaller living room-style waiting areas, healing art, positive distractions, and interactive activities throughout the center.

The lease for Adelante Healthcare Mesa was negotiated by Aaron Kuhl of Medical Office Brokers. LGE Design Build was the general contractor.
