Plans are now underway for the construction of a massive hospital campus in north Scottsdale that is expected to cost at least $400 million to build.
The project will belong to the Banner Health healthcare system, which has headquarters in Phoenix, and will see construction built on just under 50 acres of land.
That land is located at the intersection of Loop 101 and Hayden Road and will see construction of a multi-story hospital and medical office building, with work beginning either later this year or early in 2024.
What is being called the Banner Scottsdale Medical Center will house more than 100 patient beds, as well as 20 observation beds.
In a statement, Scott Norlund, chef strategy and growth officer for Banner, observed that “Scottsdale is a natural growth area for Banner, and we are committed to ensuring our patients and health plan members have care close to where they work or live when they want and need it.”
The larger Banner Health Network encompasses 15 hospitals in metro Phoenix, as well as eight health centers. The non-profit was launched in 1999 as part of a marriage between the Samaritan Health System and the Lutheran Health Systems.
