Banner Health is acquiring full ownership of the Union Hills Surgery Center in Glendale.

With the change, the Union Hills Surgery Center has been renamed the Banner Del E. Webb Surgery Center and will operate as the outpatient surgery department for Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City West.

The surgery center, located at 18301 N. 79th Ave., No. E-150 in Glendale, will allow the 373-bed Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center to consolidate some of its outpatient surgeries to the Glendale location providing needed inpatient surgical capacity within the hospital’s 10 operating rooms.

“The added capacity should make it easier for our surgeons to schedule OR time that meets their needs and the needs of their patients,” said Debbie Flores, chief executive officer of Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center. “We are very excited about this for the Banner Del E. Webb community.”

To ensure that surgery outpatients get the same safe and effective care available on the main campus, Banner Health will be investing more than $900,000 into the surgery center over the next few months, officials said.

The investment will include the installation of a new state-of-the-art electronic medical record system for nursing staff and physicians, as well as new equipment and instrumentation. The improvements are projected to be completed in early September, according to Banner officials. The center will remain operational during the equipment transition.

The facility was majority owned by Banner Health with minority ownership by a small group of surgeons. As part of the transition, Banner Health is purchasing the physicians’ minority ownership stake and will be transitioning the center under Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center’s operating license, officials said.
