PHOENIX — Abrazo Health’s newest hospital opened in Cave Creek on Monday, offering care closer to home for local residents.

Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is equipped with a full 13-bed emergency department, eight inpatient rooms and will offer ultrasound, X-ray and CT scan, laboratory, pharmacy, surgical and other services.

The hospital will serve patients of all ages, offer 24/7 emergency care and provide medical care beyond what’s available at an urgent care or freestanding emergency center, administrator Sarah Bird said in a press release.

“Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is in an ideal location for ease of access and was planned with an emphasis on quality medical care and efficiency,” Bird said in a press release.

“Our general surgery capability means if you come to the ER with gallbladder symptoms or appendicitis, for example, you won’t need to be transferred elsewhere. We have 24/7 emergency and general surgery coverage.”

The emergency department expects to see patients with conditions typically seen such as abdominal pain, sprains and broken bones, lacerations and the flu, Dr. Sara Beckett, medical director of emergency services at Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital, said in the release.

“Minutes matter in an emergency, and our emergency department will accommodate all ages. We will strive to keep ER wait times short, and to provide safe, high-quality care. It’s about providing the right care in the right place,” Beckett said.

Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is located on the southwest corner of Cave Creek Road and Carefree Highway.
