Our state-of-the-art facility features 206 beds, specially trained nurses and doctors and family-centered care. Banner Children's at Desert was designed “Through the Eyes of a Child,” meaning it has all the comforts of home and does not feel institutional. The hospital is meant to inspire healing, learning and imagination. Our Child Life professionals play an active role in ensuring children feel safe and prepared for the hospital experience. Non-procedure zones, such as the Forever Young Zone, Sophie’s Place and the Big Outside, are used for music and play therapy as well as for respite and relaxation.
