Abrazo Community Health Network will construct a new hospital near Loop 303 and Bell Road in Surprise. The hospital is expected to open in spring 2020. 

Abrazo Surprise Hospital will focus on providing emergency care and less complex medical procedures. It will include a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room and eight inpatient rooms, along with additional services.

The Abrazo Surprise Hospital is a new kind of hospital created with an emphasis on convenience and efficiency, and the second of its type for Abrazo, according to Abrazo Community Health Network CEO Frank Molinaro.

The hospital’s emergency department will be open around the clock and staffed by board-certified emergency physicians. Abrazo Surprise Hospital will offer minor surgery, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, pharmacy and other outpatient services in the 32,500 square foot building.

A similar facility, Abrazo Mesa Hospital, is opening this summer in the East Valley. Abrazo Community Health Network currently operates five acute care hospitals in the greater Phoenix area, along with physician practices and freestanding emergency and urgent care centers. 

“As the Valley continues to grow, we understand that consumers prefer to receive care closer to home. Community residents will be able to receive 24/7 emergency care, undergo minor procedures and have outpatient exams performed at the Surprise hospital,” added Jeff Patterson, CEO of Abrazo Arrowhead Campus. “Our goal is to provide multiple access points for care.”

Abrazo Surprise Hospital is expected to create approximately 50 full-time equivalent clinical and support staff jobs. It will be located at 16815 W. Bell Rd.

“The Abrazo Surprise Hospital is designed as a patient-friendly environment in an efficient, convenient location. It will offer close integration with our other facilities including the Arrowhead Campus for patients who may require more complex care,” said Patterson. “Abrazo is part of a community built on care, providing an integrated network of medical services close to home for its patients.” 

“We’re growing to meet community healthcare needs across the Valley,” added Molinaro. “We want to be good neighbors and bring our services into the City of Surprise.”
