News Release: Kraus-Anderson begins $8 million Ambulatory Surgery Center in Tucson, AZ

Kraus-Anderson and MedCraft team to build Ambulatory Surgery Center at TMC HealthCare’s Rincon campus in Tucson, Ariz.

TUSCON, Ariz. (May 2021) – Kraus-Anderson has begun construction on a state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgery Center at TMC HealthCare’s Rincon campus located at 10360 Drexel Road in Tucson, Ariz. TMC HealthCare and MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate, a national health care real estate expert, are partnering in the expansion of the Rincon campus ambulatory facilities. Together, TMC and MedCraft selected KA as the contractor for the Rincon Surgery Center project.

The $8 Million, 17,000-square-foot Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) will provide additional medical and surgical services, offering a convenient and affordable option for scheduled surgeries and procedures. The one-story building is designed to include a future 3,000-square-foot expansion for future growth.

Health Care design will be incorporated to mitigate the spread of infectious disease, including a compartmentalized lobby and waiting area for proper social distancing, hand washing stations, solid surface counters and plexi glass screens at registration.

Architect Orcutt Winslow has incorporated sustainable features in the ASC building, such as roof-top solar panels, low and no water use landscaping, a cool roof system to reduce heat island affects, trees to shade building and glass, and the use of reclaimed water for irrigation. Additional enhancements will maximize air changes throughout the building and maintain high filtration rates.

The building is located within The Pavilions at Civano neighborhood and was designed to tie-in the Civano community’s distinctive architecture, including the use of landscaping that reflects the surrounding Sonorian Desert, and pedestrian connectivity with sidewalks, patios, plazas and bicycle paths with bike racks.

Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2022.

MedCraft last year acquired a 44,000-square-foot, two-story medical office building on TMC HealthCare’s Rincon campus and has added new medical groups to establish full-time offices to better serve the local community. The expanded campus further integrates primary and specialty care, including cardiology, family medicine, imaging, lab, orthopedics, rehabilitation and urgent care.
