PHOENIX — Dallas-based Exceptional Healthcare Inc. is poised to invest $150 million to develop hospitals in Arizona, starting with what will be the first hospital to be built in the city of Maricopa.

The company's plans call for building six hospitals — each with an initial development cost of at least $25 million and would eventually employ about 600 people throughout the state. In addition to Maricopa, Exceptional Healthcare is planning to build hospitals in Prescott and Yuma. It also is considering Kingman, Bullhead City and Flagstaff among other locations.

Construction on the first phase of Maricopa's forthcoming hospital is expected to break ground Nov. 13. Plans call for starting with a 20,000-square-foot specialty internal medicine hospital, a 24-hour emergency department, along with a digital imaging suite and in-house laboratory.

The first phase will include 20 beds, with 10 emergency room beds and another 10 inpatient beds, said Saeed Mahboubi [], co-founder and chief financial officer for Exceptional Health.
