TUCSON – A new memory center is coming to Tucson in spring 2020.
The Toole Family Memory Center at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute will be constructed at 2626 E. River Rd, north of Hacienda del Sol Road.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held at 8 a.m. on Friday.
This project is a collaboration between the Phoenix-based Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and University of Arizona Health Sciences.
The 10,000 square-foot facility is set to offer comprehensive services for patients and families and conduct research studies into the treatment and prevention of memory disorders.
It is named in honor of the Toole family of Tucson, who donated $5 million to the Banner Alzheimer’s Foundation to bring the center to Southern Arizona.
