HonorHealth recently announced the opening of Sonoran Crossing Medical Center in north Phoenix. Featuring three stories, 210,00 square feet and 46 inpatient beds, this state-of-the-art facility is HonorHealth’s sixth medical center. Sonoran Crossing Medical Center serves residents of Anthem, New River, Cave Creek, Peoria, Glendale, Phoenix, and many others along I-17.
Carefully planned for patient comfort, Sonoran Crossing Medical Center features elements and healing from architectural design to the care patients receive. Patient rooms and family waiting areas offer views of the surrounding mountains and adjacent desert preserve. A unique 2,000 square foot outdoor healing garden with a water feature allows patients and visitors to gather their thoughts in a serene environment.
“The services and extraordinary care are just the beginning of what the community can come to expect,” says Kim Post, executive vice president, chief operations officer at HonorHealth. “We have been proud to serve this community since 2013, when we opened the Sonoran Health and Emergency Center. This opening is truly a milestone for HonorHealth that represents our commitment to improve the health and well-being of those we serve.”
Medical services on campus include a comprehensive obstetrical and gynecological care including prenatal and postpartum care, labor and delivery services, and a newborn nursery designed to meet the needs of babies with more complicated requirements starting at 34 weeks of age and older.
Surgical services include highly skilled surgeons using the latest technology to perform a variety of surgeries. 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 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 a hospital stay and shorten healing time.
Conditions or injuries that don’t require surgery can also be treated by expert care from HonorHealth’s team of doctors, nurses and support staff at Sonoran Crossing Medical Center.
The wide range of continued services include emergency services staffed with residency-trained, board-certified emergency physicians in a full-service Emergency Department open 24 hours, 7 days a week. A new outpatient building sits on this campus and will include physician offices and additional specialties to serve patients in the north Phoenix and Anthem communities. A hallway connects the outpatient and hospital buildings. This illustrates the unique way they are connecting inpatient and outpatient services, to help them work in close concert with each other, and provide enhanced collaboration and unsurpassed patient care, according to HonorHealth.
The existing outpatient center will continue to offer medical imaging that includes CT scans, MRIs and breast health services featuring 3D mammography.
“No matter what level of care you need, you can get it at HonorHealth,” says Post.
