The galleries illustrate a series of preview guided tours held for physicians and clinical staff beginning Nov. 27. Department faculty and staff attended tours on Dec. 4 and 5. A public “Preview Event” was held on Dec. 11 that was well attended by media, patients, physicians, and clinical and administrative staff.

DOM Chair Monica Kraft, MD, and Tammy Clark Ojo, MD, vice chair for clinical affairs, attended a tour on Dec. 21 (picutured above right) to see the setup for how different clinics would work and the flow of traffic between units would function. Others featured in earlier tours include Raj Janardhanan, MD (pictured below right in middle), with the Division of Cardiology and UA Sarver Heart Center, and John Galgiani, MD (pictured below left with hands in pockets), with the Division of Infectous Diseases and UA Valley Fever Center for Excellence.
