Banner - University Medicine North $100 Million Outpatient Campus Opens Dec. 28

Dec 7, 2017
Built by nonprofit Banner Health over the past two years since finalizing an academic affiliation agreement with the University of Arizona, the multi-specialty Banner – University Medicine North  includes 208,000 square feet of clinic space, accessible, covered parking, gardens and an “Oasis Café.”

The three-floor Banner – University Medicine North occupies 13 acres at 3838 N. Campbell Ave., just east of the cancer center. It was designed to replace a multitude of cramped and aging clinics within Banner – University Medical Center Tucson, two miles south at 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

“This one-stop location was designed entirely around the needs of patients,” said Kathy Bollinger, president of the Banner – University Medicine. “With its spacious, welcoming interiors, mid-town location and ample free parking, Banner – University Medicine North will provide a much more convenient and accessible experience for Southern Arizonans seeking treatment from university specialists.”

Beginning in January, the following medical and surgical specialties for adults will be offered at Banner – University Medicine North:
  • Abdominal transplant 
  • Allergy
  • Anticoagulation
  • Cardiology
  • Cardiovascular thoracic surgery
  • Heart and lung transplant
  • EMG
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology
  • General surgery
  • Hepatology
  • Infectious disease
  • Internal Medicine
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology
  • Neurosurgery
  • OB/GYN
  • Pacemaker Clinic
  • Plastic surgery
  • Otolaryngology (ENT)
  • Podiatry
  • Pre-Anesthesia Clinic
  • Pulmonology
  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • Rheumatology
  • Trauma surgery
  • Urology
  • Vascular surgery 
On-site lab services also will be available at Banner – University Medicine North. Medical Imaging and MRI will be added this spring, as will Radiation Oncology services.

The relocation of outpatient clinics from the hospital to Banner – University Medicine North is the first step in Banner Health’s half-billion-dollar makeover of the Tucson academic medical center built in the 1970s.

Construction of a new, $400 million, nine-story hospital tower to replace the older sections of the hospital is well underway on the Banner – UMC campus. The tower will open in April 2019.  

“Banner Health’s enormous investment in our academic medical enterprise in Tucson and also in Phoenix is literally transforming the medical landscape of Arizona,” said UA College of Medicine – Tucson Dean Charles B. Cairns, MD.  “For our patients, medical students and researchers, these enhancements will catapult us to the upper tiers of academic medicine over the next few years.”

SmithGroup is the architect of Banner – University Medicine North and the contractor is Hensel Phelps. Nearly 300 construction workers are working daily to complete the building.
