Tucson Medical Center plans to break ground on a new hospital at the corner of Drexel and Houghton Roads on Tucson’s southeast side.
The 60-bed facility is scheduled to open in 2023.
“The hospital will have a 24/7 emergency department, medical surgical units, telemetry and maternity beds,” said, Judy Rich, TMC Healthcare president and CEO.
TMC already operates an urgent care and medical offices at the location.
Rich said by 2025, hospital administrators expect 200,000 people to be living in the zip codes near the hospital.
Groundbreaking for the hospital starts next year.
