The wait is over and now north Phoenix and Anthem residents can call Sonoran Crossing Medical Center their new official neighborhood hospital.

Blossoming directly from the beautiful desert acreage on the east of the I-17 and south of Carefree Highway, the three-story, 210,000-square-foot, 70-bed hospital will soon be accepting new patients.

“The services and extraordinary care are just the beginning of what the community can come to expect from our sixth medical center,” says Kim Post, executive vice president, chief operations officer at HonorHealth. “What’s more are the architectural features and multiple healing environments that we offer to our patients and guests for comfort. This truly allows for an optimal experience that far exceeds what you have traditionally experienced from a medical facility.”

Carefully planned for patient comfort, Sonoran Crossing not only offers a healing environment inside patient rooms and waiting room areas with the mountainous views, but an added feature is an outdoor healing garden that allows visitors to gather their thoughts peacefully with all of nature’s comforts.

With new families making up the majority of the fastest-growing communities of north Phoenix and Anthem, providing labor and delivery services was apparent. Those who are looking forward to adding a child to their family can now benefit from comprehensive obstetrical and gynecological care at Sonoran Crossing. These services include prenatal and postpartum, labor and delivery services, and a newborn nursery designed to meet the needs of babies with more complicated care requirements. This unit can accommodate babies 34 weeks of age and older.

Surgery in general is not typically at the top of anyone’s list, especially having to travel to a facility that is not close to home. Surgical services at Sonoran Crossing include highly skilled surgeons performing a variety of surgeries using the latest technology.

HonorHealth team members will guide patients through the surgery process from pre-admission and testing, to preparing patients about what to expect before, during and after a surgical procedure. They even offer education classes for those who are interested. The operating rooms are slightly larger than average, to help make them ultra-flexible. This allows the surgical team to accommodate a greater array of cases in a comfortable environment, with state-of-the-art technology. Whenever possible, surgeons will use minimally invasive surgery to reduce the length of the patient’s hospital stay, shorten healing time, and allow patients to get back to their lives quicker.

What anchors this new facility is the Emergency Department to care for all of those unexpected life events. While nobody is truly prepared for an emergency, Sonoran Crossing Medical Center is ready to treat patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and staffed with residency-trained, board-certified emergency physicians. The existing outpatient center will continue to offer outpatient medical imaging that includes CT scans, MRIs and breast health services featuring 3D mammography.

“We have been proud to serve this community at this location since 2013, when we opened the HonorHealth Sonoran Health and Emergency Center,” says Post. “The community can continue to expect an elevated level of care with our emergency services, outpatient and ambulatory services. No matter what level of care you need, you can get it at HonorHealth.”

HonorHealth Sonoran Crossing Medical Center is located at 33400 North 32nd Avenue in Phoenix. For more information, visit
