Maricopa’s first freestanding community hospital, consisting of 10 inpatient beds and 10 emergency beds, broke ground in November 2020. The single-story building will be located just south of the overpass on John Wayne Parkway.
The state-of-the-art facility will include a specialty internal medicine hospital, a 24-hour emergency unit, an in-house laboratory, and a digital imaging suite — including CT scan, X-Ray, mobile MRI, and ultrasound. Dallas-based Exceptional Healthcare’s Emergency Health Center will also feature a helipad for rapid transfer of patients to larger hospitals in the Phoenix region.
“For over a decade now the City of Maricopa has been working diligently to assist health care options to locate here,” Mayor Christian Price says. “We are extremely excited to see Exceptional Emergency Centers open Maricopa’s very first 24/7 ER and hospital. This new facility will provide desperately needed medical services to our ever-increasing population, and we are so very appreciative for their large investment in our city.”
Saeed Mahboubi, chief financial officer of Exceptional Healthcare, says, “The experience working with the City of Maricopa has been fantastic. City leadership has been extremely supportive of the Exceptional Healthcare project and has been there to assist us every step of the way. We look forward to providing much-needed jobs and services to Maricopa residents in 2021.”
As Maricopa continues to attract residents for affordable housing and a high quality-of-life, a full spectrum of medical and emergency care will shortly follow. The City of Maricopa will continue to work closely with the developers to ensure rapid completion of the Exceptional Healthcare facility, which is currently projecting a completion date in autumn 2021.
