At least six new hospitals will be built in different parts of Arizona, according to an announcement made by a major healthcare provider group based in Dallas.
Exceptional Healthcare Incorporated says it plans to spend up to $150 million to build the new hospitals, which will go up in the cities of Bullhead City, Flagstaff, Kingman, Maricopa, Prescott, and Yuma.
The company, which has an operational partnership with US Assets, Incorporated, also of Dallas, has a large footprint in the Lone Star state with locations in Brownsville, Harlingen, and Port Arthur, among other cities.
It says it will spend around $25 million to build each of its new Arizona facilities.
The hospital planned for Maricopa will be the first hospital in the city’s history and is expected to measure around 20,000 square feet.
That planned facility at 19060 N. John Wayne Parkway on the west side of the city will house a 24-hour emergency department, ten inpatient rooms, as well as a laboratory and digital imaging suite.
Site plans for the new Maricopa hospital were approved last month by the Maricopa Planning and Zoning Commission, with work expected to start later this month.
A construction schedule for the other five facilities has not yet been announced.
