"I was a part of the celebration of Gilbert’s first state-of-the art, full-service hospital planned to house more than 100 patient-care beds, an emergency department, women’s services, outpatient surgery and diagnostic imaging. I am honored to be here today as the women’s and children’s services expand yet again, only 12 years later."

Government leaders, corporate executives and even young children joined in ground breaking events for a state-of-the-art medical facility designed to serve women and children in the East Valley. The project is a partnership between Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest health systems, and Phoenix Children’s, Arizona’s only nationally recognized pediatric hospital.

Called the Women’s and Children’s Pavilion, the five-story 373,947 square-foot building will be located on the Dignity Health Mercy Gilbert Medical Center campus in Gilbert, Ariz. It is expected to be completed in 2021.

The new facility is a strategic expansion of the long-standing partnership aimed at bringing together the state’s top experts for both women and children, which included opening Phoenix Children’s, a 22-bed unit inside Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.

“Since we first brought our strengths together Phoenix Children’s and Dignity Health have become a tremendous force in the care of children and women in this country,” says Linda Hunt, president and CEO of Dignity Health in Arizona. “This pavilion will mean better care for families in this rapidly growing part of the greater Phoenix area.”

Phoenix Children’s president and CEO, Bob Meyer, said, “We are thrilled to work closely with our partners at Dignity Health and bring vital services to our patients’ families here in their backyard.”
