At more than 55,000 SF, this facility is the largest multi-disciplinary pediatrics/children’s clinic in Phoenix. It is a prime example of adaptive re-use — it occupies the original JC Penney at Park Central Mall. It was built in a record fast-track time of 82 days from demolition to certificate of occupancy. The clinic now has the capacity to treat 16,000 patients each year. It serves children up to 21 years of age who have some of the most serious health conditions within the AHCCCS Network.
