Growth in the East Valley exploded during the next two decades of the hospital's history, and the original location would no longer be able to meet the area’s needs. East Valley voters approved bonds for the construction of a new hospital. In1984 the newly named Chandler Regional Hospital opened its new, then-120-bed facility at Dobson and Frye Roads, where we are located today.
Our new hospital quickly became an important part of Chandler’s Emergency Medical Services system, and we gained a reputation for quality care despite the rapid growth our community was experiencing.
Expanding Our Services
We began to expand our capacity and services in the early 1990s, including growth in our Family Birth Center, Emergency Services, Surgical Department, the addition of a permanent MRI and the opening of a comprehensive cancer center.
Our expansion also focused on bringing convenient outpatient services to neighboring communities we already served. Two urgent care centers were opened in Ahwatukee Foothills and Gilbert, and a laboratory facility in Sun Lakes. We began offering free immunization clinics and public health seminars, and we established Healthier Community Councils to work with citizens in each of the communities we serve to improve the quality of life.
We recognize our achievements have been made possible by the dedication and passion of the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers who have and will continue to work at Chandler Regional.
