A steel-raising ceremony will happen on March 22 from 9 to 11 a.m. to celebrate the construction of Chandler Regional Medical Center’s new patient tower, 1955 W. Frye Road, which will open in fall of 2014, adding 96 beds and 200 jobs. Guests will be invited to sign a steel beam that will later be used in the tower’s infrastructure.

The five-story addition will expand emergency services and the hospital’s medical-surgical unit as well as add 32 intensive care rooms and six operating suites. The $125 million project was designed by Orcutt Winslow and is being constructed by Kitchell.
