Steward Health Care Expands Hospital Network and Acquires Abrazo Mesa Hospital
Synergy Between Abrazo Mesa Hospital and Mountain Vista Medical Center will Allow More East Valley Residents to Receive Medical Care Right Where They Live
Mesa, AZ – Steward Health Care, the nation’s largest physician-led health care network, announced today that it has acquired Abrazo Mesa Hospital, an 8-bed micro-hospital located at 5750 East Baseline Road in Mesa, AZ. The facility will now be named Steward Mesa Hospital and will be Steward’s fifth facility in Arizona.
Offering 24/7 emergency services, the hospital provides additional access to patient care and short ER wait times, and will help bring Steward’s high-quality, community-based care to even more patients in the East Valley. Located just minutes from Steward’s Mountain Vista Medical Center (MVMC), the facility will also improve patient outcomes by seamlessly coordinating higher-level care at MVMC as needed.
“Providing exceptional, community-based care is at the heart of what we do at Steward, and we are excited to welcome Abrazo Mesa Hospital and its excellent staff into our world class, physician-led health care system. Together with our existing hospitals, this facility will bolster our ability to serve even more patients in the East Valley – providing the care that they need right where they live,” said Damon Brown, President of Mountain Vista Medical Center and Florence Hospital, and the Steward Health Care Arizona Region Market President.
