Banner Children’s - Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology Renovation

Banner Children’s at Diamond Children’s Cancer Center - Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Renovation | Tucson, AZ

The Diamond Children’s Cancer Center by Banner Health treats children with cancer and blood disorders in an outpatient setting in Arizona. The renovation converted an existing rehab and wellness gym into a new pediatric hematology and oncology suite.

The project consisted of complete demolition of all existing finishes and stripping the space down to the core and shell. The renovation included a build-out of eight semi-private infusion bays, four private infusion isolation rooms, seven exam rooms, patient and staff restrooms, reception and waiting areas, central nurses’ station, as well as staff support spaces.



Throughout the construction, the adjacent endoscopy unit and floors above remained open for patient care. The facility needed to be constructed with as little disruption to campus healthcare operations as possible.



The project’s success came down to exceptional communication and coordination. The project team prioritized a patient-first environment and worked closely with the hospital staff to minimize the impact of the work. To accommodate the active campus, construction hours for noisy activities were limited during the day. When appropriate, work was paused to reduce disruption to patients in the adjacent areas. This highly collaborative approach kept the project on schedule and helped maintain a great relationship with the affected user groups and departments.

"DPR Construction efforts will be truly felt by our fragile yet resilient patient population. We cannot thank you enough for everything, from the innovative design, the amazing partnership and service you provided for us, and the amazing gift of the most commented item: the mural. Thank you all so very much for this incredible opportunity."
