Banner Ocotillo Medical Center opened in Chandler in late 2020, and a new tower is planned to open in 2021 at Dignity’s Chandler Regional Medical Center, bringing hundreds of health care jobs, inpatient and intensive care unit beds, and hospital capacity during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
For years, Chandler’s growth outpaced the amount of hospital beds available to residents, Chandler Economic Development Director Micah Miranda said. With the new Banner facility and the addition of a tower at Chandler Regional, the city is closer to its goal with both health care jobs and health care capacity.
The new hospitals will also contribute to the growing health care sector in Chandler, which accounts for one of the city’s top employment sectors with more than 9,000 employees in health care fields, according to data from Maricopa Association of Governments. Dignity Health is the top employer in the city in the health care sector, employing 2,670 employees, according to the city of Chandler.
