HonorHealth, a leading Valley healthcare system serving more than five million people in the greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area, broke ground today on an expansion project at HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center. The $60 million project will involve the construction of a new state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Center of Excellence that creates a complete ecosystem dedicated to treating patients with heart and vascular conditions of all complexities.

The expansion, located at 9003 East Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale, will be completed in phases over a two-year period. Construction is scheduled to begin in May, with the entire project slated to be complete in 2025.

“We are proud and excited for this expansion. Our goal is to offer patients the most advanced, comprehensive and personalized treatments possible. The HonorHealth Cardiovascular Center of Excellence expansion will build upon our reputation as one of the leading heart hospitals in the nation. The new facilities will offer our patients the most sophisticated technology and treatments available. Equally important, the Center will be a magnet to recruit and retain top physicians and nursing teams in our region,” said Maulik Shah, MD, executive director for the HonorHealth Cardiovascular Center of Excellence. 

The first phase of construction will involve a new lobby entrance, a conference room and a cardiovascular ambulatory surgery center. The surgery center will provide patients with the benefits of a traditional surgery center, but lower costs and increase the ease of scheduling. It has a unique advantage of being located on a hospital campus. Phase one will also include the addition of new patient rooms equipped with technology to care for a variety of heart and vascular conditions. Phase two will be the construction of a cardiac intensive care unit for patients requiring complex and life-saving care, along with a remodel of existing cardiac units. The architects for this project are Cunningham Group Architecture. The general contractor is Gilbane Building Company.

HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center has been recognized as one of the top hospitals in the nation for cardiac care. The new Center will be a destination for Arizona’s most comprehensive heart care and further HonorHealth’s dedication to treating patients in our community and beyond. This expansion project could not be possible without strong public support from community leaders and benefactors.
