After several years in planning, construction of a family and specialty medical clinic is in process on the north side at Highway 69 and Lee Boulevard.
When open in 2023, the $8-million, 10,000-square-foot building will be the site for two primary care providers and two advanced clinical practitioners, as well as for specialists who need that kind of clinical space on demand.
The immediate past president of Dignity Health and Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC), John Amos, earlier said the new hospital will welcome more family and specialty physicians on an “as needed” basis.
The new clinic is part of the Dignity Health-YRMC long-term master strategy in providing adequate health care for residents in the greater region over the next several years.
The land currently under construction was made available by longtime supporters of YRMC and Dignity Health Jim and Linda Lee, prominent community philanthropists. The Lees said the facilities were particularly needed by potential patients on the southeastern border of Prescott.
The complex was designed by Archsol Architectural Solutions and is being built by Venn Construction; both Scottsdale firm.
Anthony Torres, M.D., newly named president and CEO for Dignity Health and Yavapai Regional Center recently said he is happy to be “…shepherding the next generation of health care into the community. I’m excited to see this come to life. “
