tucson-medical-centerOriginally intended to be a series of complex renovations, Tucson Medical Center added a four-story orthopedic and surgical tower to its campus that meets the increasing needs of the growing community. The tower replaced 18 existing operating rooms and added much more, including a dedicated pediatric surgery area. The new tower also adds 14 surgical suites, two hybrid rooms and 40 private patient rooms. The new tower add-on also included renovations to the building, such as shades for the windows to ward away the sun’s discomfort and an upgrade on the chilling and heating water systems. The new tower also blends in with the original design of the medical center, with native stone and copper integrated into the architecture, creating the appearance that it has always been there. During construction, the hospital 
did not experience any planned or unplanned interruptions in patient care.
