East Valley Hospitals – A critical component of our local community

Gilbert Mercy Hospital in Gilbert Hospitals Keeping Up With Growing East Valley

The typical growth pattern in Phoenix Arizona is the following: the residential homes are constructed, the developers watch the population increase  until the critical number to sustain grocery stores and retail establishments is reached.  Then we cross our fingers and hope that  road construction catches up.  A  longer leadtime but very important infrastructure component is the addition of hospitals to meet the healthcare demands of the growing community.   The east valley has seen the addition of 4 major hospitals open their doors to the public  in the last 4 years.  The Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, pictured above opened in June 2006, Mountain Vista Medical Center in Mesa opened July 2007, Banner Gateway in Gilbert opened Sept. 2007, and Banner Ironwood in Pinal County is scheduled to open in November of 2010, even though construction was finished Fall of 2009.

Banner GatewayBanner Gateway Medical Center  in Gilbert opened in Sept. 2007 and is located  south of the US60 on Higley Rd. I will always remember this hospital since I was a patient in November of 2008 when I had a kidney stone.  I remember asking the nurse who was a mother  if she had ever had a kidney stone and she replied, “Yes, and I prefer childbirth any day!”  I was never happier than when I saw them put in the IV with mass amounts of pain killer.

In Dec. 2009, the announcement was made that Banner Health and the University of Texas Cancer Center will establish the M.D. Anderson Banner Cancer Center on the campus of Banner Gateway Medical Center.   M.D. Anderson has been a leader for nearly 70 years in the cancer treatment through clincial research, education, prevention, and exploring novel treatments.  It also has more National Cancer Institute funded studies than any other cancer fighting organization.  It is scheduled to open in 2011.
