PHOENIX -- The $18 million Sonoran Health and Emergency Center is a 40,000-square-foot facility with emergency services, medical imaging and breast health screening with lower dose 3D mammography.

"The objective is to be able to service the farther northern Phoenix metro area," Steven Hardin, executive director of the John C. Lincoln Health Network, said.

The center will employ approximately 40 staff members.

Ground was broken and construction began during the first week of December 2012.
