GLENDALE, AZ—San Francisco-based Dignity Health has started construction on a $44 million hospital in Glendale.
The new hospital will be called St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center. It will be built on a 35-acre campus near Loop 101 and Glendale Avenue, and is scheduled to open in early 2014.
The hospital will initially employ 200 staff and will have the capacity to expand to 200 inpatient beds as demand grows.
Dignity also operates St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers in the East Valley.
St. Joseph’s, which also operates Barrow Neurological Institute on its campus, has signed a formal affiliation agreement with The University of Arizona to develop a $100 million outpatient cancer care clinic on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus at the northwest corner of Fillmore and Seventh streets. An inpatient unit will be at St. Joseph’s.
