Buckeye Mayor Eric Orsborn, Abrazo West Campus CEO Hans Driessnack and Chief of Staff Dr. Deepanshu Garg, and Abrazo Health CEO Brian Elisco recently toured the campus site where grading is underway with heavy equipment.

The first phase of development will be a three-story, 60,000-square-foot medical office building. Tenants are slated to include cardiology, orthopedics, spine, primary care and urology physician practices, physical therapy and other offices.

Abrazo’s medical campus at Verrado Way and I-10 is in an area that is booming with new development including commercial, retail and other services. Buckeye has been ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

“Buckeye is looking forward to Abrazo’s expansion in the city,” said Mayor Eric Orsborn. “Their commitment and investment in our community will create good, quality jobs closer to home for our residents and help fill the healthcare gap for the area.”

Abrazo Health currently serves the West Valley through its Buckeye Emergency Center, a freestanding ER at I-10 and Watson Road, and the Abrazo West Campus, a 216-bed Level 1 Trauma Center and thrombectomy-capable Primary Plus Stroke Center in Goodyear.

“We are excited to see the continued strong interest in our new medical campus. As a long-term partner of Buckeye, we have seen and felt the rapid growth of this area, as well as clearly heard the needs of residents, physicians, and our civic partners,” said Hans Driessnack, CEO of Abrazo West Campus.

Abrazo Health officials anticipate that the Buckeye medical campus at Verrado Way will be a healthcare anchor for the area and a driver of economic activity.

Dallas-based healthcare facility developer Cambridge Holdings Incorporated will develop the new medical office building. Leasing services for the medical office building will be provided by Transwestern’s Phoenix office.
