PHOENIX — Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center announced Monday it has completed a $19.25 million expansion of its Phoenix campus to add patient services and improve convenience.

The expansion of the cancer center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix at McDowell Road and 12th Street brings an additional 43 exam rooms, nearly tripling its original size of 16 rooms, the organization said in a press release.

Other improvements to the cancer center, which opened in 2019, are two new procedure rooms, four consultation rooms, 41 infusion chairs and an expansion of the lab, pharmacy and imaging areas.

“This greatly increases our ability to improve patient experience by expanding our services to provide comprehensive, high-quality cancer care to the patients we serve,” Dr. Rogerio Lilenbaum, director of Banner MD Anderson, said in the release.

“This includes more specialized exams and services, consultations, infusions and imaging services all in one convenient place.”

The organization also said the Laura Dreier Breast Center will be relocated from inside the hospital to the Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The expansion of the Phoenix campus follows the opening of the organization’s $1 million Investigational Cancer Therapeutics Research Unit at its campus in Gilbert.
