Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) will soon begin an exciting and significant expansion project on its West Campus in Prescott.
“This multi-year project will evolve YRMC West into a state-of-the-art medical and wellness campus,” said Frank Almendarez, MHSA, Chief Administrative Officer at YRMC. “The campus will include a new health center to support our focus on prevention and wellness.”
Construction Begins – Parking is Limited
Phase one of this project has already started with the expansion of the Energy Center at YRMC West. An essential aspect of the infrastructure needed to support the entire campus, the Energy Center reduced the number of parking spaces available and limited access to YRMC West parking lots.
There will be additional challenges as other phases of this project roll out. The next phase – construction of a multi-level parking structure – is scheduled to begin soon.
“The parking structure will ultimately add several hundred new parking spaces to the YRMC West campus,” Almendarez said.
Plan Your Visit to YRMC
If you have a procedure or another appointment scheduled at the hospital, YRMC encourages you to allow extra time for parking. You also may want to look for YRMC volunteers driving carts in the parking lot to shuttle you to the hospital entrance.
“I have suggested to friends that the person with the medical appointment be driven to the hospital entrance,” said Almendarez. “We also will have plenty of volunteers available to shuttle people from the parking lot to the hospital.”
We are committed to keeping you up-to-date on our construction projects. New information will be provided to local media outlets when available. Updates also will be posted on YRMC HealthConnect and YRMC social media communities—Facebook and Twitter. We encourage you to subscribe to YRMC HealthConnect (www.yrmchealthconnect.org) and follow us on social media to stay connected with developments.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during our expansion. We are confident the long-term benefits of the expansion will outweigh the temporary inconveniences. We will keep you informed of other steps to improve access to YRMC West during the expansion.
