The Queen Creek Town Council has approved a pre-annexation agreement with Banner Health’s Banner Ironwood Medical Center, 37000 N. Gantzel Road, south of Combs Road, in San Tan Valley. The pre-annexation agreement begins the formal annexation process.
The town and Banner Health began discussion of annexation of the Banner Ironwood Medical Center into the town limits in 2008. The area is within the town’s planning area, as identified in the town’s voter-approved General Plan, according to a press release.
The requested area includes the hospital, medical offices and undeveloped land. Banner intends to expand both the hospital and medical facilities over the next 30 years, according to the release.
