Wilson Electric was selected to complete Sahuarita’s first hospital. The $45 million, 77,000-square-foot Northwest Medical Center includes an 18-bed medical/surgery unit with 14 emergency department exam rooms, administration and support spaces, pharmacy, imaging department (CT, X-Ray, nuclear medicine) and two operating rooms with surgical support services.
The second-floor houses medical offices with primary care, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, podiatry, ob-gyn, gastroenterology, cardiology and more. There is room on the second floor for more clinic space or other future needs.
The hospital is at the southeastern corner of Interstate 19 and Sahuarita Road, a site that eventually will include restaurants and a drugstore. When fully staffed, the facility will employ about 100 people, including nurses, physicians, and support staff workers. The hospital officially opened for business on November 11, 2020, giving area residents another option for health care.
