HonorHealth, a leading Valley healthcare system serving 1.6 million people in the greater Phoenix area, is opening HonorHealth Sonoran Crossing Medical Center in north Phoenix in mid-September.

Featuring three stories, 210,00 square feet and 70 inpatient beds, this state-of-the-art facility is HonorHealth’s sixth medical center. Sonoran Crossing Medical Center serves residents of Anthem, New River, Cave Creek, Peoria, Glendale, Phoenix and many others along I-17.

Carefully planned for patient comfort, Sonoran Crossing Medical Center features healing colors and materials. Patient rooms and family waiting areas offer views of the surrounding mountains and adjacent desert preserve. A unique 2,000 square foot outdoor healing garden with a water feature allows patients, visitors and staff to gather their thoughts in a serene environment.

“The services and extraordinary care are just the beginning of what the community can come to expect from our sixth medical center,” said Kim Post, RN, executive vice president, chief operations officer at HonorHealth. “We have been proud to serve this community in this location since 2013, when we opened the Sonoran Health and Emergency Center. This opening is truly a milestone for HonorHealth, and it representative of our continued commitment to improve the health and well-being of those we serve.”

Medical services on campus include family centered obstetrical and gynecological care including all aspects of the birthing experience as well care for our newest patients; newborns.  This entire service is supported by a team of highly skilled physicians specially trained to provide the highest level of care and attention that new families need during this exciting time. 

A variety of highly skilled surgeons will perform surgeries across using the latest technology. This includes physicians specializing in joint replacement and minimally invasive orthopedic care, spine procedures, gynecologic and general surgery procedures. HonorHealth team members will guide patients through the surgery process from pre-admission and testing, to preparing patients about what to expect before, during and after any procedure. Education classes are also available for those who are interested in learning more about care that may impact their health and well-being. The operating rooms are slightly larger than average, to help make them ultra-flexible. This allows the surgical team to accommodate a greater array of procedures in a comfortable safe environment, with state-of-the-art technology.

Along with general medically focused services, there are other supportive care offered including emergency services staffed with residency-trained, board-certified emergency physicians; a full-service Emergency Department, serving patients of all ages, open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Sonoran Crossing also has critical care capabilities should the need arise.    

A new ambulatory center sits on this campus and will include physician offices and additional specialties to serve patients in the north Phoenix and Anthem communities. A hallway connects the ambulatory and hospital buildings to provide ease of access for physicians and other members of the healthcare team to move easily between services. This illustrates the unique way we’re connecting inpatient and outpatient services, to help them work in close concert with each other, and provide enhanced collaboration and unsurpassed patient care. The existing medical office building, across the street from the hospital, will continue to offer medical imaging that includes CT scans, MRIs and breast health services featuring 3D mammography.

“Sonoran Crossing is the first medical center offering acute and ambulatory care in the area. We have served this community for many years and are proud to expand this location,” said Post. “This hospital is part of a growing family of hospitals and health services offered by HonorHealth.  No matter what level of care you need, you can get it at HonorHealth.”
