The reason to move to Prescott, Arizona, has recently jumped up to a whole new level. Prescott will soon have a new, top of the line, medical option. Prescott is already home to state of the art Yavapai Regional Medical Center, with award-winning Cardiac Services and a beautiful Breast Care Center. Prescott residents can now be comfortable knowing that Banner Hospital is coming to town with a MD Anderson Cancer Center.


Banner Hospital Location


Land that was initially intended for the Whispering Rock commercial subdivision has recently been approved by Prescott City Council to be the new home of Banner Hospital. The parcel is located along Willow Creek Road across from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Plans included "a Banner Hospital; an MD Anderson Cancer Center; a large resort and conference center; a complex containing assisted living and independent living units; 30 homes to accommodate physicians and nurses, and a food court and coffee shops for the nearby Embry-Riddle students" (Kristina Abbey, SignalsAZ).


The hospital will house neurologists, orthopedists, cardiologists, OB/GYNs, an emergency room, a helicopter pad, and 156 beds. Building plans are in progress, working out a plan for an exception to the standard 50-foot building height limit in commercial districts.
