Dignity Rising

Executive Summary

Dignity Health East Valley is seeking to grow and evolve to support the critical health care needs of our community. In recent years, the East Valley population has grown aggressively and is projected to continue growing by 1 million new residents in the next 30 years. To continue providing world-class health care for the East Valley, we have launched the Dignity Rising initiative to provide:

  • Greater access to excellent, compassionate care, close to home;
  • Continued excellence in patient experience;
  • Specialized care for mothers, babies, and families;
  • Expanded and enhanced services in our primary areas of care; and
  • Enhanced levels of community outreach.

Dignity Rising will include adding capacity to Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers, investing in new medical technology, and enhancing our community outreach efforts. Specifically, Dignity Health will:

  • Build Arizona’s first Women’s and Children’s Tower at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center to offer specialized services for mothers and babies, close to home, in the East Valley;
  • Partner with Phoenix Children’s Hospital to provide access to significantly more specialized pediatric care in the East Valley; and
  • Add a new medical tower at Chandler Regional Medical Center, enabling expansion of our core areas of care including neurosurgery, thoracic disease and surgery, general surgery, oncology, cardiology, and trauma care.

To accommodate this growth, we will also be building a parking garage at Chandler Regional Medical Center and adding additional medical office space at both hospitals.

Dignity Rising will seek philanthropic investment to enhance our level of care through hiring and training the best care providers available, acquiring new medical technology which will provide access to new treatments, and enhancing our patient experience by investing in the healing environment of our facilities. Without philanthropic investment from our community, these would not be possible.

Through Dignity Rising, we will ensure our East Valley neighbors have access to the best health care, technology, and care providers available in their time of need. We are proud to serve the East Valley community and look forward to providing care for all who visit our medical centers for many generations to come.
