The rate of healthcare building has been steady in the last few years, with several new facilities coming online each year. These four healthcare projects are the latest to open in the Valley:

HonorHealth Sonoran Crossing

Medical Center

Location: 33400 N. 32nd Ave., Phoenix

Size: 210,000 SF

Builder: McCarthy Building Companies

Architect: Devenney Group

Opened: September 2020

Facility details: This 70 inpatient room facility is the sixth medical center opened by HonorHealth. 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.
