Poised for Growth
University Hospital opened in 1972 in the then new University of Arizona Health Sciences campus north of Speedway Boulevard in Tucson. It evolved greatly over the next four-plus decades into a network of two hospitals, dozens of outpatient clinics, a practice plan for physicians of the UA College of Medicine and a health insurance plans unit.
Following the merger in 2015 of the University of Arizona Health Network with Banner Health to create a new model in health-care delivery as the Banner University Medicine division, we are poised for growth as part of one of the largest nonprofit health care systems in the country.
Now, the hospital is at the start of a $500-million expansion that includes adding a new hospital tower to its main Banner – University Medical Center Tucson campus. It also includes construction to begin shortly on a new 200,000-square-foot outpatient health care facility adjacent to the University of Arizona Cancer Center – North Campus.
Not to be outdone, the UA Health Sciences—which includes oversight for the UA Colleges of Medicine – Tucson and Phoenix, UA College of Pharmacy, UA College of Nursing and the UA Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health—is building two new research buildings adjacent to its main campus in Tucson.
Commited to Diversity
The UA College of Medicine recognizes the value of diversity of people, thought, perspective and experience. As the sole allopathic medical college in the state of Arizona, our institution’s mission includes the provision of health-care services and resources to all Arizona residents. The college's commitment to creating and supporting programs that enhance diversity of thought, background, ethnicity and perspective, and which attract a diverse faculty to serve diverse populations is evident in part through the following programs: the National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, the Arizona Hispanic Center of Excellence, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Native American Research and Training Center, and our award winning Telemedicine program.
