Banner Health and real estate developer Alter today announced plans for a $54 million, three-story, 80,000-square-foot comprehensive sports medicine center at the Riverwalk mixed-use development, located along the Loop 101 at Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale.
When completed, the project will be a destination center for athletes that provides key services dedicated to sports medicine all in one location, making it unlike any other in the region. From youth athletes to professionals, the complex will serve as a one-stop-shop for sports-related medical care, athletic performance training and improvement, and research related to sports injury, recovery and prevention. Preliminary design is underway, with a planned opening in the fourth quarter of 2022.
“Athletes have unique needs related to their fitness training, injury prevention and injury recovery. They require specialized and focused care, which we are dedicated to providing in a convenient location,” said Evan Lederman, MD. head of Banner’s Orthopedic Sports Medicine program. “We are very excited to develop this facility to anchor our sports medicine services in Arizona, where athletes of all ages will benefit from our ability to provide comprehensive sports medicine care.”
