Abrazo Health has changed to Abrazo Community Health Network, which also affected the names of the facilities under its umbrella. Phoenix Baptist Hospital is now known as Abrazo Central Campus. In a less dramatic change, the Arizona Heart Hospital has become Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital.
Abrazo Health includes an expansive network of six acute-care hospitals, emergency centers, urgent care centers, primary practices and specialty practices.
Abrazo means embrace, “and that’s just what we do every day to help patients understand and take control of their health,” said Dr. William Ellert, Abrazo’s chief medical officer. “We view our role not only to care for our patients at our network of facilities, but also to teach our community a different—and healthier—way of life.”
Abrazo Community Health Network also is embracing the future of health care in Arizona by expanding the depth and breadth of its resources. Since 2014, Abrazo has invested $100 million in new technologies to allow for better integration of medical records.
Abrazo Central Campus (formerly Phoenix Baptist) became the only Arizona hospital to have the BrainPath system enabling minimally invasive surgery to remove deep brain tumors, and recently opened an acute rehabilitation unit.
