The University of Arizona and Banner Health plan to build a 60KSF outpatient primary care clinic on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus in downtown Phoenix.

The Phoenix City Council approved a new partnership between the city, UA, Banner and any other potential development partners to develop up to five acres on the campus.

Since UA opened its medical school on the biomedical campus in 2007, it has graduated more than 250 physicians and has invested nearly $450M to build nearly 1MSF of projects.
