New state of the art medical campus opening soon

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

A sneek peak of a new $100 million outpatient campus.

Banner-University Medicine North will open December 28th, providing state of the art care. This $100 million facility has been under construction for the last two years.

It's more than 200-thousand square feet and has a wide range of services that Banner officials say are designed with the patient first.  That means  there's doctor's offices, a pharmacy, diagnostic services and even a cafe.

Banner's CEO says the goal is to get people to their doctors quicker and easier.
"We know that access to physicians and convienence is huge. We know that really being respectful of patient's time, you know getting people in and out quickly, being able to see the right specialist at the right time is what our customers want."
 
The three-floor Banner-University Medicine North occupies 13 acres at 3838 N. Campbell Ave., just east of the cancer center. It was designed to replace a multitude of cramped and aging clinics within Banner-University Medical Center Tucson, two miles south at 1501 N. Campbell Ave. 

On-site lab services also will be available at Banner-University Medicine North.  Medical Imaging and MRI will be added this spring, as will Radiation Oncology services.

The relocation of outpatient clinics from the hospital to Banner-University Medicine North is the first step in Banner Health's half-billion dollar makeover of the Tucson academic medical center built in the 1970s.
Construction of the a new, $400 million, nine-story hospital tower to replace the older sections of the hospital is well underway on the Banner-UMC campus. The tower will open in April 2019.

"Banner Health's enormous investment in our academic medical enterprise in Tucson and also in Phoenix is literally transforming the medical landscape of Arizona," said UA College of Medicine-Tucson Dean Charles B. Cairns MD.  "For our patients, medical students and researchers, these enhancements will catapult us to the upper tiers of academic medicine over the next four years."
