HonorHealth, a premier healthcare system serving over 1.6 million people in Phoenix and Scottsdale, has officially broken ground on a substantial expansion project at their Deer Valley Medical Center. This ambitious $170 million undertaking aims to increase the number of patient beds, operating rooms, and enhance key support departments to accommodate the rapidly growing north Phoenix community.

Situated at 19829 N. 27th Ave., the expansion will progress in phases. Construction is slated to begin this summer, with the entire project anticipated to reach completion by 2025. HonorHealth’s commitment to expanding the Deer Valley Medical Center is essential in providing the north Phoenix community with convenient access to top-notch healthcare services.

Todd LaPorte, CEO of HonorHealth, emphasizes the importance of the expansion, saying, “Our commitment to expanding the HonorHealth Deer Valley Medical Center campus is critical to help us support the needs of the growing north Phoenix community and provide them with access to high-quality care close to home. By continuing to invest in key services and providing infrastructure to help us expand, both now and in the future, we will be able to grow alongside our community.”

The comprehensive expansion project, spanning over two years, consists of three distinct phases. The initial phase entails constructing a new support services building, complete with an enlarged loading dock and dedicated entrance. Additionally, a tunnel will be built to link the new facility to Pavilion 1, ensuring seamless service delivery.

The second phase of the project focuses on expanding the surgical area by adding four state-of-the-art operating rooms. The final phase involves the construction of Pavilion 3, a four-story building encompassing 166,000 square feet. This new addition will accommodate extra patient beds and enable the expansion and modernization of essential departments, including food services, lab, and pharmacy.
