Development applications have been accepted by the City of Flagstaff for the relocation of Northern Arizona Healthcare Hospital facilities. The new complex will be located on 190 acres just north of Fort Tuthill County Park and just to the west of Interstate-17. The new facility is a new 700-thousand square-foot hospital, ambulatory services and a future Health and Wellness Village. NAH is requesting to change zoning from Rural Residential to Highway Commercial and Research and Development. They also submitted a specific plan to guide both the rezoning case, as well as create development standards for the property, as well as a minor regional plan amendment to revise the existing activity center as identified in the Flagstaff Regional Plan 2030. The applications will require neighborhood outreach as well as public hearings before the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council. If approved, the ambulatory clinic could open by late 2023, with the hospital slated for opening in 2026. When the new hospital opens, the current facility will close.
