After purchasing Casa Grande Medical Center in 2014, Banner Health hired Kitchell to help bring the facility up to its high Banner standards. Initial work involved the immediate rebranding of the campus including interior renovations of the main entrance and lobby, replacement of four AHUs, a boiler and a chiller, roofing and building envelope enhancements and site work.

In early 2021, Kitchell completed the multi-phased expansion and renovation of the operational Emergency Department on campus featuring 26 new exam rooms. The Banner Casa Grande Emergency Department records more than 4,000 visits a month, making it the busiest Emergency Department (ED) in Pinal County. The expansion provides greater access to emergency care services.

Phase I consisted of relocating the existing Wound Care department and the renovation of 3,291 SF of an existing MOB suite. Phase 2 included two areas totaling over 16,000 SF. The scope consisted of the Emergency Department expansion into the vacant Wound Care area featuring new exam rooms, IDF and electrical rooms, waiting area, reception and quick looks. The renovation of the north half of the existing Emergency Department included floor plan improvements, finish upgrades and refreshing existing exam rooms. Phase 3 included partial demolition and remodel of an adjacent room into a new CT room.
