Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers met with leadership from Banner Health and developer partner NexCore on Wednesday, January 29 to break ground on Banner’s newest health center project.
Located near 75th Avenue and Loop 101, this new Glendale location will be Banner’s largest health center yet. This site is expected to be two to three times larger than Banner’s next-largest health center, and represents a combined investment of $53 million. Coming in at 128,000 square feet, this location will be home to 128 exam rooms and 13 imaging rooms.
With completion expected in spring 2021, Banner’s newest health center is set to employ 215 health care professionals, including 47 physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Primary care will include family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics. Specialties will include cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general surgery, psychiatry, obstetrics, gynecology, orthopedics, and vascular treatment.
In an effort to become a one-stop-shop for anything pertaining to health, this location will offer labs, imaging, as well as a pharmacy all on-site. Banner’s Chief Operating Officer Becky Kuhn said this new health center will improve patient access and lower costs.
