PHOENIX — A new hospital in Surprise is looking to staff up before it opens later this year.

Abrazo Health is hosting a job fair for experienced registered nurses and emergency department techs on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its new Surprise location at 16815 West Bell Road, the organization said in a press release Tuesday.

The hospital, which is expected to open later this summer, is looking for individuals with at least two years experience. Recruiters and hiring leaders will be conducting interviews onsite during the job fair.

According to Abrazo Health, the Surprise location is expected to have more than 50 full-time equivalent clinical and support staff jobs.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, job fair attendees will be screened and have their temperatures checked before entering the building, the release said. Applicants are asked to bring a face mask to wear.

The West Valley hospital near Loop 303 and Bell Road will offer 24-hour emergency care and have an operating room for minor surgical procedures and eight inpatient beds. The facility will also provide X-ray, lab and pharmacy services.

The Surprise location is the second of three Abrazo microhospitals planned for the Valley. The first opened in Mesa in 2019, and another is being built in Cave Creek. The Cave Creek location is expected to be completed by 2021.

We want to hear from you.
