Texas-based Exceptional Healthcare announced Wednesday it will start building a 20,000 square foot community hospital in Yuma next month on March 12 in Yuma.
The facility carries an $18 million price tag and will include a specialty internal medicine hospital, a 24-hour emergency department, on-site testing and laboratories, inpatient and outpatient beds, and an air ambulance landing area.
"We're very excited to be entering this Yuma marketplace with what's going to be our newest Exceptional Healthcare hospital," Bruce McVeigh, the Chief Operating Officer for Exceptional Healthcare told KAWC." We look forward to partnering with the community, we look forward to partnering with the healthcare facilities in town so that we create a continuum of care."
Yuma County residents can expect more of a 'concierge' service with the new healthcare facility, McVeigh said.
The hospital will be the second of its kind in Arizona. The other location will be in the city of Maricopa. However, the company says it is looking to expand its locations to Bullhead City and Prescott.
