About Banner Health Center plus, Glendale, Ariz.

Winner of the “Best New Development, MOBs and Other Outpatient Facilities, More than 100,000 square feet” Category, Banner Health Center plus is a three-story, 128,413-square foot Medical Office Building (MOB) in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Ariz.

Banner selected NexCore to develop a new MOB unlike any other in Banner’s portfolio to provide easy access to top-quality healthcare with multiple, diverse services under one roof. NexCore led a lean design initiative, studied patient/provider experiences and best practices and initiated efficiencies that led to an overall lower cost per encounter while achieving a more positive patient experience. The completed MOB offered wayfinding to ease patient anxiety, dual entry exam rooms, off-stage integrated care team setting, full height glazing in waiting areas to maximize daylight and connection to mountain views and a wellness trail.

“Banner Health Center plus embodies the creative solutions NexCore brings to many projects – incorporating elements that are part of the health system’s DNA, woven through our signature flexible model that is designed to adapt to the specific market’s needs,” Mr. Varney says. “The efficiencies gained through user groups and patient/provider experience processes and prototypes has once again resulted in an outstanding healthcare facility that meets the needs of the client, the consumer, and the community.”

Banner Health Center plus was joined by three additional NexCore-developed projects that were named 2021 Finalists:
■ Northwest Transitions, Tucson, Ariz., a Finalist in the Best New Development, Hospitals and Other Inpatient Facilities (any size) Category;
■ The Azure at Palm Coast, Palm Coast, Fla., a Finalist in the “Best New Development, Post-Acute & Senior Living Facilities (any size)” Category; and
