New Emergency Center on track to open soonFeb 16, 2021
Preparations are underway for a spring opening of the new Carondelet St. Raphael Emergency Center, located near I-10 and Wilmot Rd. The emergency center will provide around the clock emergency care for residents of the nearby residential and commercial areas.
Construction of the facility has been completed, with supplies and medical equipment setup underway. Recruiting for staff is ongoing, and open positions are available for viewing at carondelet.org/careers.
“Carondelet chose this area as projections show continued growth and need for nearby medical care. We are pleased to be able to expand our services in the greater Tucson area,” said Chris Tweedy, administrator for the facility.
“St. Raphael Emergency Center will be open around the clock, offering convenient access for the nearby growing residential area and major employment centers. The facility’s 13-bed emergency department will be open around the clock and staffed by board-certified emergency physicians,” said Tweedy.
The facility will offer a patient-friendly design with emergency care services in an efficient, convenient location. It is designed to provide close integration with Carondelet’s hospitals for patients who may require more complex care.
“Carondelet Health Network is investing in the Tucson area to create a health system with services in appropriate locations with quality, value and customer service among our priorities. Our goal is providing an integrated system of services for those who choose Carondelet for their care,” said Carondelet Health Network CEO Doug Luckett.
Carondelet St. Raphael Emergency Center will open following completion of required licensure and inspections. An opening date is expected to be announced soon.
