Banner University Medical Center – Tucson made a significant investment in its campus, selecting the joint-venture team of Sundt/DPR to construct a $275 million improvement project. The project included a nine-story, 670,000-square-foot tower, which replaced a 40-year-old portion of the hospital, along with additional renovation work. As the only Level One trauma center in Southern Arizona, Banner University Medical Center – Tucson plays an important role in the health of Southern Arizona residents and visitors.
The state-of-the art facility further enables Banner Health to provide innovative healthcare throughout Arizona. The tower includes:
- A new hospital main entry, cafeteria and campus support departments

- 204 patient rooms, including 12 labor and delivery suites and 24 maternity rooms with private bathrooms and showers

The facility also includes more than $50 million in new equipment and technology to further improve the patient experience. In addition to constructing the new patient tower, we renovated two floors and the lobby of what is now Banner Children’s at Diamond Children’s Medical Center.
