Plans for a large expansion to the Banner Gateway Medical Center have recently made their way to the Town of Gilbert’s Planning Commission on October 7th.
The original Banner Gateway Medical Center, located at 1900 N. Higley Road, opened in the fall of 2007 and currently consists of a five-story patient tower housing 180 beds, and a two-story Diagnostic & Treatment (D&T) facility. According to the project documents, the original master site plan allowed for “two additional bed towers and the expansion of the D&T facility.”
Banner Health’s expansion plans include the construction of one new five-story patient tower consisting of 181 new patient beds at full build-out and will be attached to the existing tower to the east. The new tower is anticipated to be built in two phases, which will include 85 beds for phase one and 96 beds for phase two.
