Kitchell broke ground on the 11-story, 281-bed (with capacity for 626), 760,000 SF facility in May 2008 and finished in June 2011, ahead of schedule and under budget. We also renovated 123,000 SF in the adjacent existing hospital. Its new Imaging Department has Arizona’s first 256-slice CT scanner and the new MRI unit is a 3 Tesla magnet system. At the peak of construction, Kitchell was coordinating 1,400 workers on a highly active campus in a busy metropolitan area.
