PHOENIX — A Texas-based, physician-led health care network has acquired Abrazo Mesa Hospital and renamed the facility.

Steward Health Care purchased the eight-bed micro hospital at 5750 E. Baseline Road and named it Steward Mesa Hospital, according to a Tuesday press release.

It’s Steward’s fifth facility in Arizona.

“Providing exceptional, community-based care is at the heart of what we do at Steward, and we are excited to welcome Abrazo Mesa Hospital and its excellent staff into our world class, physician-led health care system,” Damon Brown, Steward Health Care Arizona region market president, said in a press release.

“Together with our existing hospitals, this facility will bolster our ability to serve even more patients in the East Valley – providing the care that they need right where they live.”

The hospital is near Steward’s 178-bed Mountain Vista Medical Center, offering East Valley residents more options for health care.

Steward has 34 other hospitals in Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah.
