The Mayo Clinic in Phoenix is doubling the size of its campus with a $648 million expansion project. They expect to break ground in the next 8 to 10 months. Last month, U.S. News & World Reports rated the Phoenix Mayo Clinic as the best medical center in the state and the 11th best in the country. It is also the nation’s fifth-largest solid organ transplant center. The expansion of its campus off 56th Street south of the Loop 101 is expected to create almost 2,000 jobs in the next 10 years, including more than 200 for physicians and scientists.
‘It will add 1.4 million square feet of clinical space, including 94 hospital beds, five operating rooms, expanded emergency department and much-needed infrastructure, like cafeteria space and parking structures.” said Dr. Wyatt Decker, CEO of Mayo Clinic in Arizona
