The Flagstaff City Council Tables The Vote On A New Hospital And Campus Until May 16th

The Flagstaff City Council decided to postpone a vote on Phase One, and a property rezone, of a new hospital and health and wellness village Tuesday in a meeting that lasted nearly eight hours. The vote to postpone was 6-1 in favor, with councilwoman Deb Harris the lone no vote. The new campus is planned to include a new 700-thousand square-foot hospital, ambulatory services and a future Health and Wellness Village. The complex would be located on nearly 173 acres just north of Fort Tuthill County Park and just to the west of Interstate-17. Council spent almost seven hours on discussing the project, with over three hours of public comment. Most of the comments were in favor of the project, however some of the comments that went against the plan and the rezone brought up the size of the project and the need for a “needs” or health assessment. A representative from Northern Arizona Health Care says a community health assessment exists on their website. One man says a review of current leadership at the hospital needs to be done, before a new facility is built. Some of the issues Council says they will look at include use of the Purple Sage Trail, the addition of more EV charging stations and more. If approved, the construction of the large project is expected to bring jobs and millions of additional revenue to the city.
