Northwest Medical Center plans to open the first urgent care center in the Foothills in late October.
The 18,000-square-foot, $7.8 million La Paloma Urgent Care and Physician Offices will stand at the corner of Hacienda del Sol and Sunrise.
“Opening this facility is part of our strategic plan to meet the healthcare needs of the many people who live in the Foothills area,” said Paul Kappelman, Northwest Medical Center’s chief executive officer, in a release. “We think we can meet these healthcare needs not only by opening the urgent care facility, but by bringing a variety of quality physicians to this area.”
The new center will include urgent care facilities, lab and X-ray services, mobile digital mammography and physician offices, according to a release.
And, looking to the future, an additional 4,000 square feet of “shell space” already has been included at the site for future expansion.
A public open house will be held in late October, with food giveaways and tours of the facility just prior to the center’s opening.
Other system projects underway include the expansion of the emergency department at Northwest Medical Center, which will add 13 treatment rooms and additional CAT scan and MRI machines.
