Banner Health will soon begin construction on a new, comprehensive medical center in the Southeast Valley. While Banner Health is a leading health care provider in the broader Southeast Valley, this will be the first Chandler hospital for the non-profit health care system.
The four-story, 240KSF hospital will be located on the southeast corner of Alma School Road and Loop 202 Santan Freeway. It will be adjacent to the existing Banner Health Center in Chandler, and will help fulfill the healthcare needs of area residents, including those who reside in Ahwatukee, Chandler and Gilbert.
The Southeast Valley is one of the fastest growing segments in Maricopa County, with Chandler and Gilbert representing a significant portion of the growth. The growth rate in these communities is out-pacing that of the rest of the Phoenix metropolitan area and will require additional health care services. In addition to the rapid growth of the overall population, Banner also has more than 80,000 members in its Banner Health Network insurance organization that reside in the Southeast Valley. They participate in value-based health plans that require convenient and affordable care.
