Sun Life Center for Women opens in Maricopa

To meet the needs of a fantastic community, area nonprofit healthcare organization Sun Life is thrilled to announce the opening of its newest location in Maricopa.

The Maricopa Center for Women opened Wednesday, Nov. 11 in Sun Life’s former family practice office at 44765 W. Hathaway Ave. Dr. Joseph Edwards, MD, and Danielle Jennings, women’s health nurse practitioner (WHNP) are on staff.

Dr. Edwards completed his medical education at the Universidad Autonoma DeGuadalajara, Facultad DeMedicine, in Guadalajara, Mexico, and State University of New York, Binghamton/ Upstate Medical Center in 1979. His internship was completed in 1980 and residency completed in 1981, both at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California. Dr. Edwards is a Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist, and a fellow of the American College of Gynecologists. He joined Sun Life Family Health Center in 2007.

Danielle Jennings, WHNMP, joined Sun Life’s Center for Women in 2015 and has been working at Sun Life’s Center for Women in Casa Grande. Born in Seattle, Wash., Ms. Jennings moved to Arizona in 1997 and pursued a nursing career in obstetrics. She accumulated 18 years of labor and delivery experience, most of that time spent working at Chandler Regional Medical Center.

Ms. Jennings graduated cum laude from the University of Washington with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 1993. She completed her nurse practitioner training through the University of Cincinnati. She is certified as a women’s healthcare nurse practitioner and is certified in inpatient obstetrics and electronic fetal monitoring.

Dr. Edwards, Jennings, and the rest of the Maricopa Center for Women staff will be providing the Maricopa community the following services: 

  • - Prenatal care for both low and high risk pregnancies
  • - Delivery at Banner Casa Grande or Chandler Regional hospitals, based on patient choice

“The Maricopa community has been extremely supportive of our expansion, welcoming our new staff and making us feel an important part of the community. It is our goal to make Sun Life the area provider of choice to serve the medical needs of the community,” explained Sun Life CEO Travis Robinette. “Meeting the needs of every community we serve is paramount to us at Sun Life, and is one of our highest ranking goals in our strategic plan. So long as there are calls for essential care in Maricopa and elsewhere, Sun Life will be striving to answer.”
