HonorHealth Sonoran Medical Center

Construction begins on HonorHealth’s sixth hospital

On Dec. 5, 2018, HonorHealth and community leaders celebrated the start of construction for the HonorHealth Sonoran Medical Center with a groundbreaking ceremony. The new hospital will be the centerpiece of a healthcare campus at Interstate 17 and Dove Valley Road in north Phoenix.

HonorHealth’s sixth hospital, the three-story facility is slated to open in September 2020 with 40 beds and room to expand as the surrounding community continues to grow.

Before the groundbreaking took place outside, HonorHealth CEO Todd LaPorte addressed a group of about 80 in the second-floor community room at the Sonoran Health and Emergency Center. It opened five years ago on the campus. Also speaking at the event were Bill Gates, a Maricopa County supervisor, and Jim Waring, vice mayor of Phoenix.
