1.Banner Del Webb Medical Center – the ‘Big Daddy’ of medical centers around Surprise
Banner Del Webb has a very large and impressive campus (8thlargest in the Phoenix area) just off Meeker Boulevard and Grand Avenue in Sun City. The hospital has been around since 1988. It provides a whole host of services in its 400+ beds. Some of the services include:
- Behavioral and Mental Health
- Emergency Room
- Integrative therapy
- Intensive care
- Lab work
- Neurosciences and stroke
- Pharmacy on site
- Pulmonary diseases
- Women’s Health
- “America’s 250 Best Hospitals Award for 2019” – means top 5% in the nation for clinical quality
- “Critical Care Excellence Award for 2019” – Superior clinical outcomes in treating pulmonary embolism, respiratory system failure, sepsis, and diabetic emergencies
- “Stroke Care Excellence Award for 2017 and 2019” – Superior clinical outcomes in the care and treatment of stroke
The Banner hospital system has two programs that might be especially appealing to family members as well.
- A very robust volunteer program– Volunteers can be any age and any experience level. They will interview each volunteer and try to find the best match for them within the hospital
- The “Partners in Caring” program that pairs their patients with a friend of family member. The ‘Partner’ helps the patient set goals for recovery, discusses important decisions with the patient, and advocates on the patient’s behalf.
Among medical centers around Surprise, Sante Rehab is definitely one of the more luxurious places to stay. They have a beautiful building and ground. The surroundings make their patients feel like they are being pampered while they recover. But just because they have a beautiful building doesn’t mean they don’t have excellent care.
In 2019, Sante received a bronze medal from the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living. This is the first step towards the Gold Level of business performance. It means National recognition as one of the best health care providers in the United States. The award criteria include:
- Very low hospital readmission rates
- Five star ratings
- Occupancy rates
Sante has a wonderful dining room with great meals, experts in rehabilitation services, and a full medical staff. Sante provides a variety of medical services, including:
The transitional rehab center is the one our residents use the most. Sante believes that a traumatic injury can be life-altering in so many ways. That’s why they believe that they need to treat the mind, body and spirit. Treating all three helps their patients more quickly.
Their excellent medical staff is on hand to treat the physical issues and provide rehabilitation. Then they go above most other medical centers around Surprise. They assign a personal care manager to their patients. The personal care manager helps the patient with their emotional and spiritual healing. Working on all three aspects of the problem will help the patient return to their normal life much more quickly.
Apparently it worked well for Gilbert, and many of our residents in our assisted living homes:
We try to adopt the same philosophy in our homes.
Grandview is first and foremost another assisted living facility. It might seem weird that we are trying to promote our competition. However, we are not promoting the assisted living part of Grandview.
We would rather promote the rehabilitation services of Grandview instead. The Grandview Rehabilitation Center is one of the medical centers around Surprise that has helped our residents. Especially when they need rehab services. Like Sante it is a very upscale rehab center.
Unlike Sante it sits right on the same campus as Banner Del Webb hospital. The area around Del Webb has the largest concentration of medical centers around Surprise. Working in conjunction with a large hospital means each patient will receive extra care.
Grandview offers both short-term and outpatient rehabilitation services. Short-term rehab helps people transition from the hospital environment. Over time they become healthy enough to go home. If one of our residents has to go to the hospital, they will often spend some time at Grandview before coming back to our home.
Outpatient rehab allows our residents to continue living in our homes, and just take day trips to receive physical, occupational or speech therapy. They can make these trips on a daily or weekly basis, or as their physician recommends.
We really enjoy the partnership we have with these three businesses and other medical centers around Surprise, AZ. Do you have some experience with other medical centers around Surprise? If so, please let our readers know in the comment section below.
