Sun Life Family Health Center has expanded services in Maricopa and opened a Center for Women.

Sun Life opened the doors to its new family health center on Bowlin Road by the Copper Sky Multigenerational Complex in July. The old location on the southwest corner of John Wayne Parkway and Hathaway Avenue was renovated to be the new center for women.

“About 36 years ago, Sun Life opened their first office in Maricopa,” Sun Life Medical Director Robert Babyar said. “We are proud to be part of Maricopa’s heritage, and even prouder still to continue to grow to meet the community’s healthcare needs.”

Building a women’s center in Maricopa has been a goal for Sun Life management for nearly eight years. The nonprofit organization has women-specific clinics in Casa Grande and Apache Junction as well, but never had the space to put one in Maricopa until the new family health center was completed.

The new center provides full obstetrics and gynecology services on site. Ultrasounds and advanced laparoscopic robotic surgeries are available at Sun Life Casa Grande’s facility.

“We are happy to initiate services here in Maricopa,” Sun Life Center for Women Director Eddie Estrada said. “We will offer services to everyone. No one should be denied services because they don’t have great insurance.”

The Sun Life Center for Women is located at 44765 W. Hathaway Ave. It is open from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
