PHOENIX — Construction recently began on a 220,000-square-foot project that will add a medical tower at a Chandler hospital.

The new tower at Dignity Health Chandler Regional Medical Center is expected to be open by spring 2021, according to a press release.

The facility near Dobson and Pecos roads will add 96 patient beds and 200 jobs.

It will be the facility’s fourth medical tower and bring the total bed count to 429.

“The new tower will not only bring new jobs to the East Valley, but it will allow us to further our commitment to providing the best care possible to our growing and aging community,” Mark Slyter, president and CEO of Dignity Health Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers, said in the release.

The expansion is the latest in a series of renovations at the hospital.

The hospital’s Tower C, opened in 2014, will have 55,000 square feet of renovations that will add eight new surgical suites and expand outpatient services and operational departments. The Tower C renovations will be completed in 2022, according to the release.

Projects to add approximately 1,200 new parking spaces as part of a five-story parking garage and two surface lots were recently completed, the release said.
