The New Clinic Fills a Huge Need for Local Healthcare Services for Downtown Residents
PHOENIX – March 24, 2016 – Today, the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury and IASIS Healthcare announced the grand opening of a state-of-the-art Multi Specialty Clinic that will provide downtown residents and employees with their first comprehensive healthcare option in the area. The 28,000 square-foot clinic is located inside what was formerly the Phoenix Suns Athletic Club, on the southeast corner of the Talking Stick Resort Arena lot.
The clinic is the cornerstone of a partnership between IASIS Healthcare, a national health services organization, and the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury. Its first-class amenities will provide access to convenient, high-quality healthcare in the same place where the teams’ basketball stars will have services performed as well.
“As a leading provider of health services with three hospitals, a behavioral health hospital, numerous physician practices and a managed care organization, this clinic is a significant addition to our operations in Arizona. It fills a huge void for those who live, work and attend school in downtown Phoenix with no access to vital healthcare services,” said Carl Whitmer, CEO of IASIS Healthcare.
The clinic will offer unique diagnostic imaging services that include downtown Phoenix’s only Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), equipped with Ambient Design lighting and sound technology that makes patients more comfortable and relaxed during their procedure, as well as CT and digital x-ray. The facility will also offer medical specialties such as cardiology, dermatology, primary care, women’s care, dentistry, podiatry, ophthalmology, chiropractic care, sports behavioral medicine, orthopedics, sports medicine and physical therapy, making it a one-stop-shop for all healthcare needs.
“Thanks to the creativity and innovation of our friends at IASIS, downtown Phoenix now features a comprehensive healthcare option for those that live in or frequent the area,” said Suns President, Jason Rowley. “From mind-to-toe, patients will undergo the necessary treatment, recovery and training to get ‘back in the game,’ sometimes doing so right alongside our professional athletes.”
