Abrazo Community Health will begin construction of a “microhospital” in Surprise that will provide 24-hour emergency room services, as well as minor surgical and medical procedures.
The 32,500-square-foot building will be near Loop 303 and Bell Road.
The facility will feature a 13-bed emergency department, an operating room, eight inpatient rooms, laboratory, diagnostic imaging and a pharmacy.
The hospital marks the first in Surprise, a city of more than 130,000 people. The two nearest hospitals are Banner Boswell in Sun City and Banner Del Webb in Sun City West.
