Mayo Clinic to Double Size of Phoenix Campus with $648M Project
PHOENIX — Mayo Clinic has announced plans to double the size of its Phoenix medical campus with a $648 million expansion over the next five years. Dubbed the Arizona Forward Project, the plan will add 1.4 million square feet of building space to the existing 1.7 million square feet, with expanded clinical capacity, support services and infrastructure near Loop 101 and 56th Street in North Phoenix.
Highlights of the expansion include a six-story patient tower; three-floor addition to the existing four-story Mayo Clinic Building; three-story building to house an expanded Emergency Department, Laboratory Medicine, Radiology and Pharmacy departments; 1,000-space underground patient parking garage; 1,600-space multi-level staff parking garage; and new infrastructure space.
New patient areas are projected to open as early as June 2020, with the final phase opening in April 2023. The expansion plan increases the number of inpatient beds from 280 to 374 by 2023 and creates close to 2,000 new jobs, including nearly 200 physicians by 2029.
