ARIZONA CITY – A new facility site for Desert Senita Community Health Center will be constructed to serve Arizona City and its surrounding communities.
The new location will be located along Sunland Gin Road next to the recently built Family Dollar store.
The health center will fully integrate primary care services to better serve the community and will offer a variety of health care services including behavioral health, psychiatric medication management, a pharmacy and more.
The site is also being designed to allow for the future development of dental and physical therapy services.
American Charter Development and Finance have engaged in the development and construction of the new project and the layout will feature eight clinical rooms, a private behavioral health room, an in-house pharmacy, lab draw room and a group education room.
The pharmacy services will be made available to the general community, whereas all other services will only be available to health center patients.
“We are excited to grow our capacity to fully serve the needs of the patients in our community,” DSCHC CEO Jonathan Leonard said. “We set out in 2017 to extend the health centers mission of providing quality, local, affordable healthcare services to the Arizona City community and are now seeing that vision come into full view. The new site will allow us to expand access to local health care services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.”
The organization arrived in Arizona City in April 2017 when it opened at its current location at 13060 S. Sunland Gin Road. Patients are encouraged to visit this location to establish care prior to the opening of the new site.
DSCHC hopes to retain its presence at the current facility location as it looks to introduce physical therapy and dental services to the Arizona City community.
New medical, front office, fiscal, and administrative staff will be hired in the months leading up to the opening, with a focus on hiring from within the Arizona City community as an economic driver, which is also part of DSCHC’s mission as a federally qualified health center.
