PHOENIX – The city of Peoria announced Monday that the site of an abandoned medical center was sold and will be replaced by a new state-of-the-art campus.

First Service Medical, a development and investment group, purchased the seven-acre property and plans to demolish the unfinished Peoria Regional Medical Center and develop a new campus.

“Peoria has spent many years working to remove the skeletal remains of PRMC and although many roadblocks have stalled our efforts, Peoria persevered in securing a demolition order, while working to find the right owner for this site,” Mayor Cathy Carlat said in a press release Monday.

The medical center has been an abandoned construction project for the past few years in the north part of the city near the southwest corner of Lake Pleasant Parkway and Jomax Road.

The original owners intended to build the city’s first hospital in 2010 but stopped a year later. In 2017, the owners filed for bankruptcy which ignited a series of legal proceedings and caused further delays.

“We are happy to have purchased the land out of bankruptcy and develop it into a useful commercial development for the community,” Matt Leach, principal of First Medical Services, said.

The current building will be demolished in October.

More information on the medical campus will be provided in the near future, according to the release.
