About Us

At Banner Desert Medical Center, we are dedicated to a high-tech, high-touch philosophy of care that has helped us become the hospital of choice for East Valley communities for nearly 40 years. As one of the largest and most comprehensive facilities in Arizona, Banner Desert serves as a tertiary referral center for the East Valley of metropolitan Phoenix and treats the highest levels of acuity in the East Valley.

We offer state-of-the-art technology in all departments, from our da Vinci surgical robots to our 3D cancer technology. Banner Desert also offers unique integrative therapies, from Dog Therapy and Music Therapy to Massage Therapy.

Banner Desert Medical Center recently opened a new patient tower dedicated to women’s health and wellness. The tower is adjacent to the existing pediatric patient tower, providing easy access for the unique health care needs of women and children of all ages. The new women’s tower provides an innovative approach to women’s care and will be a health care destination for all women, from childbirth to senior care for years to come. 

With new modern patient care and procedural spaces, the women’s tower features:

  • A new entrance for women and children with a grand redesigned lobby
  • 148 new, state-of-the-art inpatient rooms, including a new Labor & Delivery unit for low- and high-risk deliveries, and 108 medical/surgical rooms dedicated to women’s care and recovery
  • Large patient rooms with natural light, views, refrigerators and digital device connectivity
  • A dedicated OB triage unit
  • New C-section operating rooms, including support for women carrying multiples (such as twins and triplets)
  • Adjacent access to the 76-bed, Level III NICU and pediatric patient tower
  • A new Lactation Boutique offering supplies and lactation services by board-certified lactation consultant nurses

We are committed to providing our community with excellent patient care and are ranked as one of the top five hospitals in Phoenix, being recognized for eight high-performing specialties, according to U.S. News Best Regional Hospitals report.
