Construction Cost: $290M Size: 293,000sf Completed: Phased
This project is a $290 million dollar expansion of the Glendale campus, near Phoenix, Arizona. The project consists of a seven-story, 293,000 square foot, new bed tower south of the emergency department, a 94,000 square foot, three-story new lobby building north of the existing hospital main lobby. Areas of focus include pediatrics, high-risk obstetrics and neonatology, cardiology and cardiac surgery, vascular services, oncology, general surgery, neurosciences and neurosurgery. With the expansion, Banner Thunderbird will have 597 acute care beds and a new 64 bed emergency department. This additional capacity will allow Banner Thunderbird to pursue growth opportunities and become a tertiary (higher-level of care) level facility. Currently, Banner Thunderbird has 397 acute care beds, which includes a 24-bed Children’s Center and a 42-bed Behavioral Health Center. The expansion will allow the Children’s Center to grow to 52 beds, which includes a 12-bed PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit). Chavez-Grieves Consulting Engineers, Inc. is the Structural Engineer on the project. NTD Stichler of Phoenix is the Architect, and McCarthy Builders of Tempe, Arizona. Central plant was expanded by 15,000 square feet.
