Banner Health, the leading health care provider across metro Phoenix, has invested $400 million into a new, comprehensive Scottsdale medical center, which will bring Banner’s high-quality health care and hospital services to communities in the Northeast Valley.


Expected to open in 2026, the new Banner Scottsdale Medical Center will be located on the southwest corner of Hayden Road and the Loop 101 freeway, and will include an acute care hospital, adjacent medical office building and a cancer center. 

The full-service, destination hospital will focus on Banner Health’s key areas of distinction, including cardiovascular, orthopedics, cancer and neuroscience programs, and will feature digitally-enabled facilities to provide seamless integration with Banner's ambulatory and virtual care sites throughout Arizona.

The four-story, 384,000-square-foot medical center will house 106 licensed patient beds and 20 observation beds, along with physician offices, specialty care and other clinical services, as well as shelled space set aside for expanded services in Scottsdale, which is expected to grow by more than 17% in the coming decade. 

“Our strategic growth plan is focused on convenience and access, with facilities close to home for our patients, members and their families,” says Scott Nordlund, chief strategy and growth officer for Banner Health, in a statement. “Scottsdale is a natural growth area for Banner, and we are committed to ensuring our patients and health plan members have care close to where they work or live when they want and need it.”

In addition to offering extended medical services, Banner Scottsdale Medical Center is expected to provide 1,000 healthcare related jobs over the next five years and over 2,500 jobs, including construction and ancillary jobs, at full development.

Banner Health currently operates multiple medical centers in the metro Phoenix metro, including the Banner Behavioral Health Hospital in Scottsdale, which has provided inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services to the community for more than 40 years. More recent projects include the Banner Ocotillo Medical Center in Chandler, the new women’s tower on the Banner Desert Medical Center, a new patient tower on the Banner Gateway Medical Center campus that offers expanded cancer care and women's health care services, and  in Phoenix. 

In its dedication to meet health care needs in growing communities, Banner Health is also set to open Banner Sports Medicine Scottsdale, a comprehensive sports medicine and high-performance center for athletes of all ages and skill levels and has announced plans for a new hospital in Buckeye, Ariz.
