“It’s amazing to see how much this hospital has grown in the last eight years,” stated Sharon Lind, CEO of Banner Ironwood Medical Center. “During the time we’ve been in operation, the community has experienced a substantial population increase.

“Health care is rapidly evolving, so the demand for quality medical services is high. With new technologies we’ve introduced, new services, and now a new medical office building, we are making sure that we can exceed those expectations and continue to provide exceptional patient service and care.”

Ryan Companies US, Inc. has been awarded to do the construction, and the Plaza Companies will be helping to develop and lease the space, according to a release.

The building will be three stories and will include approximately 60,000 square feet of space, which will be leased to various physician practices and medical groups.

Construction on the new building is estimated to be completed later this summer.

It is Banner Ironwood’s first major construction project on the campus, 37000 N. Gantzel Road, since the hospital’s opening on Nov. 1, 2010.
