The University of Arizona Health Sciences sent a “Construction Notice” memo Jan. 5 that Banner – University Medical Center has completed vacating the outpatient clinics (OPCs) within the UAHS Building 201, which also houses the UA College of Medicine – Tucson—specifically those clinics on floors 2 and 4 through 8.
Pictured right, the Adult Medicine Physician Offices of 6OPC – before and now. Pictured below, views from four corners of new Banner - University Medicine North, Building 2.
Services available at the new three-story, $100-million Banner – University Medicine North 208,000-square-foot facility include:
• Abdominal transplant
• Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgery
• Heart and Lung Transplant
• Electromyography (EMG)
• General Surgery
• Infectious Disease
• Internal Medicine
• Otolaryngology (ENT)
• Pacemaker Clinic
• Plastic Surgery
• Pre-Anesthesia Clinic
• Pulmonary Function Testing
• Trauma Surgery
• Vascular Surgery
The area now vacated on the UAHS campus includes a number of ambulatory clinics associated with the UA Department of Medicine, including 2OPC (at right) which housed a number of pulmonary services and general internal medicine clinics.
The UA will renovate these spaces to accommodate the many faculty office and administrative spaces of those units being displaced from the Biomedical Research Laboratories (BRL), Faculty Office Building, various Elm Street properties, as well as the Comstock and Abrams Buildings, to make way for the completion of the new Banner – University Medical Center Tucson hospital tower and related parking.
“This communication is to alert you that construction will begin next week,” the memo states.
The contractor, Lloyd Construction will begin mobilizing Monday, Jan. 8. The timeline to get the work completed and individuals moved in is extremely aggressive and will require double work shifts (6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 2:30-10:30 p.m.).
“While we will do our best to limit the most noisy work to the 2nd shift, we request and thank you ‘in advance’ for your patience, understanding and cooperation as we proceed ‘full speed ahead’ to accomplish this very important project,” the memo continues.
If an issue arises that requires attention, please do not hesitate to contact:
Lloyd Construction Superintendent: Dennis Manley, 471-8421 (cell)
UAHS Planning & Facilities: 626-4648
The new 9-story, $400 million hospital tower is scheduled for completion in mid-2019. For the last “pictorial progress report” on the tower’s construction, click here.
