As a major city (the fifth largest in the United States), Phoenix has all the amenities you would expect a big city to have. We have everything here from huge parks (including a theme park and multiple water parks) to malls and hospitals. Whatever your reason for wanting to be close to the hospital, you’ll find that one is never too far away in Phoenix.
Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix
As the largest hospital in the Phoenix area by number of patient days, this medical center is sure to have whatever you need. Located conveniently in Downtown Phoenix, this is one of Banner Health’s flagship hospitals. It’s operated by Banner Medical along with the University of Arizona Colleges of Medicine in Phoenix and Tucson, and it is a university hospital which means that while students may be learning, you will be sure to have an experienced physician who not only knows their area well, but is able to teach it to medical students.
