Search Phoenix Arizona

The Arizona State Hospital (originally deeded as the Insane Asylum of Arizona in 1885 by the 13th Territorial Legislature) opened for business in 1887 on the 93 acre campus located at 24th Street and Van Buren in Phoenix to treat the most severely mentally ill residents.

Two new modern facilities now stand in the northwest 23 acres of the 93 acre campus, dedicated to the seriously mentally ill adult civil and adolescent patients who are court-ordered to the Hospital for treatment. In July 2003, the brand new inpatient 16-bed adolescent facility opened and in February 2003, the brand new inpatient 200-bed adult civil facility was opened.

The first new treatment facilities built on the premises since the 1952, this historic achievement provides hope to both patients and staff, and serves as a lasting tribute to the collaborative leadership that made this project a reality.
