Way out in the far west suburbs — Phoenix, Arizona — Banner Health is erecting a brand new addition to its Banner – University Medical Center. Designed by HKS Architects, which counts both Chicago and Phoenix as two of the many cities in which it maintains offices, the new facility will consist of a 13-story patient tower atop a three-story podium, housing the emergency department and more. DPR Construction is the general contractor, tasked with having the project complete and ready to treat patients in 2018.
Just a correction: This isn’t in the “far-west suburbs.” In fact, if anything, it’s a bit east-of-center. But in any regard this is just north of downtown Phoenix.
I know. That was sarcasm. As in, a far-west suburb of Chicago.
