PHOENIX -- Phoenix Children's Hospital is making preparations to open a new facility inside Dignity Health's Mercy Gilbert Medical Center in October.
Dr. Ryan Bode with PCH said the new facility will provide a big service for the East Valley community.
"It's been over a year-long planning process for this unit and we involved (the community) initially with stakeholders meetings and getting their input and they expressed their excitement over this announcement," he said.
