The 449-bed Maricopa Medical Center at 2601 E. Roosevelt will be demolished and replaced by a new, slightly smaller hospital. Also, a new behavioral health hospital will be built, as will several new inpatient clinics, these probably in the East Valley, West Valley and north Phoenix.
The projects, which could total up to $935M, are in the tentative plans of the board of the Maricopa Integrated Health System, which oversees current clinics and the Maricopa Medical Center, a premier teaching facility.
Last November, 64% percent of voters approved Proposition 480, which authorized the board of the Maricopa County Special Health Care District, the same as the MIHS board, to issue and sell general obligation bonds for numerous capital investments.
Up to $935M in bonds can be issued.
