Valleywise Health Facilities

Program overview

Vanir is serving as the integrated program manager for Maricopa County Special Health Care District’s seven-year bond program to develop, improve and expand Valleywise Health facilities. Projects include:

New Acute Care Hospital Tower – Phoenix

A new Hospital Tower is being built on the existing Valleywise Health Medical Center campus. It will provide 233 patient beds; a Level I Trauma Center; surgery, ICU, obstetrics and pediatrics departments; a pharmacy; and a laboratory, as well as the world-famous Arizona Burn Center. The tower is scheduled to be completed in 2023, with site work finishing in 2025.

Comprehensive Health Center – Peoria

The Valleywise Comprehensive Health Center – Peoria project included the construction of a new outpatient facility. The three-story facility, which was built on a vacant site in an area identified as a medical desert, provides the underserved community with the following departments: outpatient surgery, imaging, urgent care, dialysis, family medicine, specialty clinics, behavioral health, dental, pharmacy and lab.

Valleywise Behavioral Health Center – Maryvale

The Maryvale project involved converting an existing hospital structure into a behavioral health hospital with an emergency department. There are 192 behavioral health beds located on four upper floors with 30 acute emergency department beds in the ground floor emergency department. Support departments include a laboratory, pharmacy, imaging and a new secure public entrance.
