About Banner Estrella
Banner Estrella Medical Center opened in 2005 in west Phoenix as a full-service, acute care hospital and a five-story medical office building on a 50-acre medical campus.
Our hospital is designed to provide a soothing, healing atmosphere for both patients and their family members.
Features include: unlimited visiting hours for designated care partners, room-service meals for patients and visitors, premium movies, free Internet access and interchangeable wall art.
Additionally, we incorporate state-of-the-art technology such as electronic medical records and computerized physician order entry system. These systems work together to reduce and eliminate medical errors.
Banner Estrella also offers state-of-the art technology such as iCare, a telemedicine program that provides an extra layer of monitoring for patients in intensive-care units. Banner Estrella's Maternity Services department uses an intelligent OB program to help reduce the chances of complications during labor and delivery.
Banner Estrella employs approximately 1,400 health care professionals and support staff, and a medical staff of more than 700 physicians who serve the rapidly growing West Valley communities of Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Peoria, Surprise, Tolleson and west Phoenix.
The 266-bed hospital is currently undergoing its first major expansion, a two-year project that includes the recent opening of a second patient tower. This tower opened in March 2014 and, upon full built-out, will add 144 beds to the campus, while also expanding surgical, obstetrical, imaging and emergency department capabilities. The expansion project, scheduled for completion in July 2015, will also double the size of the hospital's Emergency Department.
