Banner Health Center to break ground in Goodyear
PHOENIX – (Nov. 1, 2012) – Elected and community officials from the city of Goodyear joined leaders from Banner Health on Thursday to break ground on a Banner Health Center located at Cotton Lane and Estrella Mountain Parkway.
Goodyear Mayor Georgia Long and Goodyear Director of Economic Development Harry Paxton joined Banner leaders at Thursday’s ground-breaking.
The 18,000-square-foot center will open next summer. The Goodyear center comes on the heels of four similar ground-breaking celebrations Banner Health christened last week in the East Valley.
“We are pleased to be able to expand Banner’s presence in the Valley through this new health center,” said Jim Brannon, chief executive officer for Banner Medical Group. “Through our community health centers we look to provide high-quality, convenient healthcare for the whole family — from young families to mature adults and everyone in between.”
Goodyear’s Banner Health Center will offer primary care including family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics. In addition, rotating physician specialists are expected to be scheduled onsite to meet patient needs. Basic imaging and laboratory services are available onsite for added patient convenience.
The Banner Health Center in Goodyear will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
