McCarthy Building Companies and Devenney Group Architects recently completed Dignity Health Chandler Regional Medical Center’s new patient-care tower, Tower D. Located in Arizona, it is designed to respond to the growing community’s increasing healthcare needs. It is the hospital’s second major expansion in less than a decade.
Tower D will serve as the hospital’s main entrance and include 96 additional patient care beds. This will bring Chandler Regional’s total bed count to 429, providing greater access to care. The facility includes:
First floor: new main hospital entrance and lobby, patient admitting, cardiac rehabilitation, ambulatory therapy unit, gift shop and chapel
Second floor: surgery registration area, pre-operation and post-anesthesia care units and 24 thoracic patient rooms
Third floor: 36 intensive care unit patient rooms
Fourth floor: 36 standard patient rooms
Fifth floor: shell space for future beds
Basement: new pharmacy, materials management department and a new loading dock
In addition to the new five-story Tower D, the construction project also includes a new parking structure with additional surface parking to accommodate more than 1,100 vehicles. The Design-Build construction team will remain onsite through the spring of 2022 as it completes the renovations of the existing spaces, as well as the garden that serves as a connector of the growing healthcare campus.
