A majestic new health facility is on the horizon with Sun Life Health announcing last week plans to build a multistory building at the southwest corner of Florence Boulevard and Henness Road, in the hospital area.
The 10-acre site when fully completed will offer a variety of medical services and options such as lab, imaging, a pharmacy, pediatrics and a walk-in health care facility, consolidating operations that now are located nearby.
According to an official Sun Life Health press statement, the site plans include space set aside for educational purposes.
“The educational space will allow Sun Life Health to focus on meeting the needs of medical professionals looking to gain hands-on experience through residency programs, externships and clinical rotations.”
Sun Life Health planning documents for the four-story facility also outline “preliminary program elements” that include primary care medicine consisting of some 36 providers, associated staff and 90 examination rooms, a women’s center that will feature a dedicated obstetrician and gynecology clinic with approximately 25 examination rooms as well as additional pediatric and behavioral health facilitates also being provided.
Sun Life Health said the new building is being touted to meet the increasing demand on its health services and the new site once approved will provide a one-stop solution. It is across the street from Banner Casa Grande Medical Center.
“Sun Life Health started in 1976 in Casa Grande and has been dedicated to providing high-quality health care ever since,” the announcement said. “Sun Life Health currently operates five patient facilities, and this new health center will provide the much-needed space to grow our services in one larger, comprehensive office.”
The planned Sun Life Health center will be subject to City Council and planning and zoning approval with design plans expected to be presented in the coming months.
