Medicine for Business and Industry

Medicine for Business and Industry’s new occupational injury clinic in Goodyear is a full-service occupational health clinic that offers injury care, employee wellness, pre-employment services, physical therapy, drug tests, physicals, safety screenings and more.

Hello, readers! Welcome back to Business Briefcase. I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. This week, we resume the column with news of several great new openings around the West Valley. From Avondale to Goodyear, medical-related practices are popping up all over.

Beyond the health care industry, however, we have a change of ownership and name in Tolleson (and a related celebratory event to boot) as well as a campaign hosted by several West Valley car dealerships to collect bicycles for kids.

But that’s just this week. In the coming weeks, plenty more developments will be covered. Though there are no Buckeye or Litchfield Park updates this week, you’re bound to hear some news in the future, especially as I’m already working on acquiring some details for residents of the former. Anyway, here’s the news!

First, Phoenix Mountain Chiropractic Life Center has a new Avondale location. Opened this summer, the practice is headed up by Dr. Joe Hornback, who worked at The Joint in Avondale from July 2012 until this past March. Phoenix Mountain Chiropractic Life Center, located at 1412 N. Central Avenue, Suite F, across from Bowlero, is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. During the rest of the week, Hornback works at his Phoenix location. For the time being, the Avondale location focuses solely on chiropractic adjustments, though the eventual goal is to include acupuncture and massage therapy treatments like at the Phoenix location.

Let’s stick with the medical realm for another item. Medicine for Business and Industry opened a new occupational injury clinic in Goodyear. This is MBI’s eighth clinic in Arizona and fourth in the West Valley. At 4,700 square feet, the Goodyear location features an expansive waiting room, numerous patient exam rooms, a spacious physical therapy area, digital X-ray technology and a patient-focused design. It is a full-service occupational health clinic that offers injury care, employee wellness, pre-employment services, physical therapy, drug tests, physicals, safety screenings and more. MBI Goodyear is at 14419 W. McDowell Road. For more information, visit mbiaz.com.

Now let’s head farther east, over to the city of Tolleson. ACE Recycling recently came into new ownership. Formerly known as OCM Recycle West, it was founded in 2012 by Kate Hopeman and Patty Hannon, but acquired in April by John and Shelby Maguire. Now, the Maguires plan to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony in partnership with the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce at noon Friday, November 1. The event was rescheduled from late September. ACE Recycling is at 10297 W. Van Buren Street, Suite 16, between 99th and 107th avenues. For more information, visit aceewaste.com or contact Shelby Maguire at 623-907-5430 or shelby@aceewaste.com. The Southwest Valley Chamber can be contacted at 623-932-2260 or info@southwestvalleychamber.org.

Finally, this year’s Recycle Your Bicycle campaign kicked off. Among the Earnhardt Auto Centers locations connecting new and gently used bicycles this month for Arizona kids in the foster care system is Earnhardt Honda, 10151 W. Papago Freeway, Avondale; Earnhard Hyundai Avondale, 10401 W. Papago Freeway, Avondale; Rodeo Ford, 13680 W. Test Drive, Goodyear; and Rodeo Kia, 10685 W. Papago Freeway, Avondale. Once collected, the Arizona Association for Foster & Adoptive Parents will help distribute the bicycles during the winter holiday season. Last year more than 1,300 bicycles were distributed.

That’s all the briefs for this week! Thanks for reading!
