A new and somewhat small hospital could see construction next year on the northeast side of Flagstaff.
Members of the Flagstaff Planning and Zoning Commission have given their approval to a project that will see the building of a 44,700 square foot structure housing a small emergency room.
The facility will go up on a just under 5-acre site at 1895 N. Jasper Drive.
The project belongs to the Scottsdale-based Apricus Health Network and will also include space for offices and a laboratory and up to 8 patient beds.
Set to serve residents near the McMillan Mesa section of the city, the facility is being called a “micro hospital” by Apricus officials, with site space for both vehicle and bicycle parking.
Hospital space in the new micro hospital will comprise some 17,000 square feet.
Launched by a group of physicians, Apricus has locations of varying sizes, largely throughout southern Arizona. Earlier this year the company additionally announced plans to open centers in Houston.
To be designed by the Dalke Design Group of Tempe, the building’s exterior will feature earth tones, some stucco elements, and exposed masonry block.
