The city of Goodyear and Adelante Healthcare are excited to celebrate the opening of its newest healthcare facility, Adelante Health Center. To mark the occasion, the company will host a Family Fun Fest this weekend and a ribbon cutting ceremony in April (details below).

The new 45,000-square-foot facility is uniquely designed on seven acres, located at 13471 W. Cornerstone Blvd., just east of Abrazo West Campus Hospital. This project brings a total capital investment of over $4.7 million to the city and will employ approximately 40 full-time positions. Adelante Healthcare is a not-for-profit, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

“Adelante Health Center is a unique and beautiful new landmark in the city of Goodyear,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “On top of the amazing building designed by world renowned architect, Douglas Cardinal, the company is a leader in bringing quality and affordable healthcare to communities. Adelante understands a healthier environment means a healthier future for us all.”

Adelante’s goal is to offer everything families need to get healthy – and stay healthy – all under one roof, including family medicine, internal medicine, OB/GYN, family dental, behavioral health, on-site laboratory and pharmacy, WIC/nutrition and pediatrics. Founded 30 years ago, the organization continues to expand its staff, services and locations. Adelante operates ten health centers in Central Arizona and is committed to sustainable healthcare for all. They are dedicated to improving the health of their communities by providing the highest level of primary and preventive care, making services affordable for patients of all economic backgrounds while operating in an environmentally responsible manner. The company’s staff speaks 11 languages and can provide translations services for those who need it.

“We chose to open in Goodyear for several reasons; chief among those is the incredible commitment the city of Goodyear has made to create a healthy community for their residents and a nurturing environment for business,” said Adelante CEO and President, Avein Tafoya. “In addition, the leadership at Abrazo West Campus was instrumental in the decision and provided vital support. Finally, we’re delighted to be one of the charter members of the Wellspring Park Conservancy and look forward to seeing the project become a reality.”

Sustainable healthcare is what drives Adelante Healthcare and is the guiding principle behind everything they focus on. The company also leads the pack with technology, including the use of electronic medical records to coordinate the care their patients receive.

The addition of Adelante Health Center energizes Goodyear’s rapidly expanding Medical Innovation Corridor, making it one of the largest medical and healthcare districts in the West Valley. The city is also home to other major medical facilities including Abrazo West Campus, the only fully designated Level 1 Trauma Center in the West Valley, as well as the award winning Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
