Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City, Ariz., has broken ground on its $106 million expansion project, according to AZ Big Media.

The expansion, started in May,  includes a new 40,000-square-foot emergency room, six-story patient tower and a main lobby.

The number of beds in the ER will increase from 42 to 56, according to the report.

"Banner Boswell Medical Center opened nearly 50 years ago to serve the small but growing community of Sun City," Banner Boswell COO Brian Standage told AZ Big Media. "Our new ER and patient tower positions us to serve the community for the next 50 years and beyond, as we strive to make healthcare easier and life better for our patients."
