Exceptional Healthcare Breaks Ground on New Hospital in Maricopa
Additional Community Hospitals Already Planned for Yuma, Prescott, Other Communities
MARICOPA, Arizona (date, 2020) — A Texas-based hospital group broke ground earlier this month on a critically needed community hospital coming to Maricopa.
Exceptional Healthcare is entering Arizona with its first facility in the City of Maricopa, in the Phoenix metro region. The 20,000-square-foot Phase 1 of the facility will be located in the heart of Maricopa on State Route 347, and will be the first facility of its kind in the community.
More than 150 people total attended two socially distanced, outdoor groundbreaking celebrations held on November 13, where community leader praised the new project as a long-needed necessity for Maricopa’s growth and evolution.
“We were gratified to see the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the new Maricopa hospital, and pleased to have the opportunity to meet so many Maricopa residents who are looking forward to our presence,” said Saeed Mahboubi, Chief Financial Officer for Exceptional Healthcare. “It reinforced just how important it is to improve the healthcare infrastructure in smaller Arizona communities, and our hospitals will be an important part of that effort.”
The state-of-the-art facility includes a specialty internal medicine hospital, a 24-hour emergency department, a digital imaging suite – including CT Scan, X-Ray, mobile MRI and ultrasound – an in-house laboratory, and outpatient and inpatient hospital beds for acute admissions and overnight observation of patients.
Additionally, in partnership with higher-level hospitals in the Phoenix area, Exceptional Healthcare will feature a landing area for air ambulances to ensure the fastest transfer of patients needing a higher level of care.
Exceptional Healthcare is already planning for additional facilities in Prescott and Yuma as well as locations in other communities throughout the state.
Neighborhood community hospitals are important because they offer residents of communities without large healthcare resources an alternative to driving long distances — often at times of medical emergency when seconds count. It also provides patients with the ability to stay closer to home for less significant internal medicine-related admissions, allowing patients to be closer to their families and loved ones.
At the Exceptional Healthcare facilities, each inpatient room will have accommodations for a family member to stay the night, as well as high-level concierge-style service. Plans include chef-prepared individualized meal service as well as complimentary toiletries, bath robe, and slippers for patients to increase their level of comfort.
As Maricopa continues to grow, the need for immediate lifesaving care is critical, and the ability for residents to be admitted to a hospital for basic inpatient care without having to leave Maricopa is a plus.
The $18 million facility in Maricopa is expected to employ between 60-100 employees, and is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2021.
Exceptional Healthcare is forging partnerships with medical groups from across the region to best integrate its new facilities into the overall healthcare marketplace and ensure patients enjoy the maximum efficiencies possible as a result of the new community hospitals.
Exceptional Healthcare operates more than a 15 clinics and emergency hospital medical centers throughout the state of Texas. The new Arizona hospitals will mark an expansion of their usual footprint.
