McCarthy Completes Construction on New Patient Tower at Chandler Regional Medical Center

CHANDLER, AZ — McCarthy Building Companies and Devenney Group Architects recently completed Dignity Health Chandler Regional Medical Center’s new patient-care tower, Tower D. Designed to respond to the growing East Valley community’s increasing health care needs, this is the hospital’s second major expansion in less than a decade.  

“This expansion project is very exciting for all of us at Chandler Regional, and for the community at large,” said Mark Slyter, President and CEO of Dignity Health Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers. “It is a direct result of the outstanding care our team provides. Their hard work and dedication are why people seek services at Chandler Regional and why the hospital has continued to undergo tremendous growth.”

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 structure includes:

  • First floor: a new main hospital entrance and lobby, patient admitting, cardiac rehabilitation, ambulatory therapy unit, gift shop, and chapel
  • Second floor: a 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 and renovations to existing space that will allow for eight new surgical suites, and the expansion of key outpatient services and operational departments.

“We began this major hospital construction expansion project in the summer of 2019 not knowing that a global pandemic was just around the corner,” said Nick Pearce, Project Director with McCarthy Building Companies’ Healthcare Services Team. “We were honored to help support and give back to our health care partners during the pandemic.”

The design-build construction team will remain onsite through the spring of 2022 as they complete the renovations of the existing spaces as well as the garden that serves as a connector of the growing health care campus.

“It’s been really exciting to be able to support the hospital in the steps towards their strategic vision and commitment to the community,” said Eric Ubersax, Architect and Project Manager at Devenney Group Architects. “The collaboration between the facility, the City of Chandler, and the overall design-build team has made for an amazing project that will serve the community for decades to come.”

Devenney Group Architects and McCarthy Building Companies served as the project’s design-build team. Other partners on the project include WSP, Stantec, RVi, Buehler Engineering, Cannon & Wendt Electrical Co., TDIndustries, The Berg Group, and Schuff Steel Management Company.
