Banner-University Medical Center Tucson | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Banner-University Medical Center Tucson (Ariz.). Formerly the University of Arizona Medical Center, this hospital changed its name upon the merger of the University of Arizona Health Network and Banner Health that was announced in 2014 and closed in March of this year. The main campus opened in 1971 and is also home to Diamond Children's.

This hospital is nationally recognized for high quality patient care, teaching and research. It's the No. 2 hospital in Arizona, according to 2014-15 rankings from U.S. News & World Report, and nationally ranked in geriatrics. It is home to the only Level I trauma center in southern Arizona and is Magnet recognized for excellence in nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

And soon, the 479-bed hospital will get a facelift. A major part of the merger with Banner includes "significant" construction projects at the Tucson campus, including an 11-story tower with 300 private patient rooms, a new operating room area, a new lobby and a new hospital entrance.
