Will offer primary care, dermatology services

Banner Health will open an almost 30,000-
square-foot health care clinic in Phoenix, across from Desert Ridge Corporate Center. Banner Health Center Desert Ridge (name) will be Banner’s second offering in the fast-growing north Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

The new clinic will provide primary care services, dermatology services with spa and laser treatments and X-ray imaging. It will have 30 exam rooms, an independent laboratory and a conference room.

We are excited to become part of the Desert Ridge community,’’ said Mystie Johnson Foote, MD, chief executive officer for Banner Medical Group. “We can offer our new community convenient, high-quality care for individuals and their families.’’

This will be the first Banner Health clinic built specifically to provide dermatology and medical-spa amenities. The medical spa rooms will be designed to enhance patients’ experience and comfort during their aesthetic procedures. Procedures will include laser-skin resurfacing, facials, vein removal and laser hair removal. Procedures will be provided by licensed aestheticians.

Banner Health Center Desert Ridge will also offer six internal-medicine physicians, two family-medicine physicians and a nurse practitioner.

The health care clinic will open in January 2018. It will be located between Irma Lane and the Loop 101, west of Tatum Boulevard and adjacent to Mountainside Fitness.

Ryan Companies is developing, building and financing the project.
