Banner Health plans to build a hospital in Buckeye — directly across the street from a competitor making plans to build its own hospital campus.
The Phoenix-based nonprofit health system plans to build a four-story, 330,000-square-foot hospital at the northwest corner of Verrado Way and Interstate 10, which is where its Banner Health Center is located on land the hospital system already owns.
