End Of An Era For Maryvale Hospital
Many years of healthcare and community service came to an end on Monday, December 18 as a once-busy hospital closed its doors for good.
Abrazo Maryvale Hospital has shut down after 56 years in the neighborhood. While many community members are sad to see the hospital that means so much to them go, a consistent decline in the demand of health services left no other option.
Years of dwindling operations led Abrazo to announce the closure earlier this year, stating “it had experienced a significant decline in community demand for its services.” Over the past few years, Abrazo had taken steps to reduce services at the hospital. Several years ago, they stopped delivering babies, while earlier this month, they stopped admitting patients.
The hospital was conveniently located for Maryvale residents, who could easily walk to their healthcare appointments and treatments. Now, they will have to travel much farther to go to the next nearest hospital.
Abrazo says that Maryvale patients can access four other hospitals and multiple healthcare facilities within six miles of the now-closed hospital.
More than 300 employees were affected by the closure, and they will be placed or transferred to other Abrazo locations.
