Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
HonorHealth, a Valley healthcare system serving 1.6 million people in the greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area, broke ground Thursday on a new facility to bring together outpatient care, along with fitness, nutrition and other preventive health services to provide whole-patient care.
The HonorHealth Medical Campus at Pima Center, being developed in collaboration with Boldt Healthcare Real Estate, will feature a 100,000-square-foot ambulatory building, according to a press release.
Slated to open in the second quarter of 2024, the Scottsdale location is on the west side of the Loop 101 and Pima Road and represents an investment of $50 million, the release states.
The HonorHealth Medical Campus at Pima Center will offer sports medicine, primary care, urgent care, imaging, physical therapy, bariatrics and other preventive services. These services will be integrated alongside a membership-based medical fitness center that will include a fitness floor, free weights, cardio machines, aquatics center, gymnasium and a running track.
“This new offering for HonorHealth is an illustration of how we are furthering our mission to improve the health and well-being of those we serve,” said Todd LaPorte, CEO of HonorHealth, in a prepared statement. “By bringing these services together under one roof, the campus will create an environment that is a focal point for the community to improve and maintain overall health.”
Different from a typical health club or fitness center, a medical fitness center focuses on the prevention and treatment of chronic disease through regular participation in medically supervised physical activity, nutrition and health education, HonorHealth officials say.
The integration of services in one location allows for greater convenience and a more cohesive approach to care. This model provides community members with in-depth health and wellness services from diagnosis to treatment to rehab and prevention.
