About Us

Northwest Medical Center Houghton, opening in early 2022, will be a 52-bed hospital serving Tucson's east side. Located at Houghton Road and Old Spanish Trail, this full-service hospital will combine advanced technology with compassionate caregivers to provide convenient healthcare, close to home.

Key Services Include:

  • 24/7 Emergency Care
    When minutes matter, having a hospital nearby can give you peace of mind. Our emergency room is staffed by board-certified physicians and experienced nurses. With a separate entrance for ambulances and a helipad on site, we're prepared to care for a broad range of emergency conditions.

  • Operating Rooms, Including Robotic-Assisted Surgical Capabilities
    The hospital offers a broad range of surgical care -- with additional specialties expected soon. Currently, the hospital performs gastroenterology procedures, gynecological surgery, and general surgery. There is also a robust orthopedic surgery program, with physicians who specialize in sports medicine, joint replacement and reconstruction, general orthopedics, and orthopedic spine surgery.

  • Cardiac Catheterization Lab
    With two cath labs, our team is ready to intervene quickly and efficiently to help patients experiencing a heart attack.

  • Labor, Delivery, Postpartum & Neonatal Intensive Care
    We're excited to help you welcome your new baby to the world! Many of our spacious labor and delivery suites have mountain views, and unlike at other hospitals, you'll stay in the same room after your baby is born. Our unit features two dedicated operating rooms for Caesarean sections, and with a Level IIE special care nursery we're able to support babies born early or those who need extra support after delivery.

  • Medical/Surgical, Telemetry, and Intensive Care Units
    Our hospital features three levels of inpatient care, helping patients recover from a broad range of injuries and illnesses. Staffed by compassionate nurses, techs, and physicians, we're here to take care of you.

  • Diagnostic Imaging, including MRI, CT, X-Ray, Ultrasound, and Mammography
    Our hospital features a broad range of imaging technology, for both inpatients and outpatients. Whether you need a screening exam or your physician requires images to help diagnose an illness, we're excited to provide advanced imaging care.

  • Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
    Whether you're a patient in the hospital, or need ongoing therapy care on an outpatient basis, our therapy teams will work with you to create a plan of care to help you get back to doing what you love.
