The new Valleywise Health Medical Center, a 670,000-sf public teaching hospital, has broken ground in Maricopa County. The hospital will support public health and academic learning and research and represents the next phase of Valleywise Health’s Care Reimagined program.

The project represents the only safety-net hospital in Arizona and needed to be inclusive of all programs that support pubic health and academic learning and research through a collaborative relationship with Creighton University Medical School. Designed to replace the current aging facility and become the new flagship campus for the health system, the project features the Arizona Burn Center, which is one of the preeminent burn programs in the United States.
