Peoria, AZ — It feels like it was only a few short months ago Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS) and the City of Peoria celebrated the groundbreaking of the new 127,000 SF West Valley Primary and Specialty Care Center. Now rising three stories high and over 50 feet skyward, construction is well on its way.
The health care center is located on a 20-acre site which is part of the Peoria Place property at Grand Avenue and Cotton Crossing. When it opens in early 2020, it is estimated there will be approximately 320 staff dedicated to this site, treating an expected daily volume of about 255 patients and visitors, thus addressing the health needs of the rapidly-growing West Valley with a wide range of services.
MIHS has been a leader in training physicians since 1952, and today trains roughly 400 doctors a year in 13 Graduate Medical Education programs.
Every year, MIHS trains over 1,000 nursing students from 16 nursing schools across our state. These future doctors and nurses will experience a wide range of clinical experiences at the West Valley Primary and Specialty Care Center – an interdisciplinary environment. They’ll work under the guidance of top-notch physicians and experienced nurses, raising the level of care to their patients.
“We are proud to help fuel the economic engine of Peoria and become integrated into the fabric of the West Valley as a care provider, employer and civic partner,” said Steve Purves, MIHS President and CEO. “The West Valley Primary and Specialty Care Center is one of the first projects in our Care Reimagined initiative that will fulfill our commitment to provide “exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time” to the residents of the West Valley and beyond.”
“We are very excited to welcome MIHS’s West Valley Primary and Specialty Care Center to Peoria, and particularly honored that MIHS has chosen our great city for the first project in its Care Reimagined program,” Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat said. “This new facility will not just provide access to high quality and compassionate medical services to our residents. It will help to fuel the West Valley’s economic engine as it becomes increasingly involved in this vibrant community as an employer and civic partner.”
