Rising in Phoenix 

Creighton is preparing students for a workforce that demands innovative care amid a rapidly changing world.   

To extend the reach of this transformative education — to infuse more communities with our singular sense of service — Creighton heads west. 

Creighton’s 183,000-square-foot, $100 million health sciences campus — opening in 2021 at Park Central in midtown Phoenix — will serve as a four-year medical school and accommodate nearly 900 students, including future physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pharmacists and physician assistants.

Arizona needs health care professionals now. 

Arizona needs more health care professionals to meet the state’s booming population and the growing needs of aging and diverse demographics. 

By 2030, Arizona is expected to have just one primary care doctor for every 1,500 people and a projected shortage of 50,000 nurses. Such shortages can result in dangerous delays in the diagnosis and treatment of our residents.  

Creighton’s new campus can't come to Phoenix soon enough.

Meeting a need 

Creighton has already offered a fresh injection of health care workers to the area. Over the past decade, more than 70% of Creighton medical students placed in Arizona have remained in-state — with hundreds more on the way over the next decade. 

Your gift to the Health Sciences Phoenix campus’s general fund will allow us to meet our greatest and most immediate areas of need, supporting Phoenix student scholarships, cutting-edge programs, technology, equipment and spaces enriching our students' Jesuit education.  

With your help, Creighton will change the face of health care in the Southwest and form a new generation of compassionate and practice-ready professionals for an area direly in need of them.
