A new memory and research center for patients with Alzheimer’s disease is set to open in Tucson next spring.
The Toole Family Memory Center is under construction near Hacienda and River Roads.
The 10,000-square-foot facility will be part of the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute. University of Arizona clinicians and researchers will also contribute to the new center.
The facility will be home to innovative treatment and prevention studies. It will also provide a series of outpatient services for those battling the disease and resources for their loved ones.
“Banner Alzheimer’s Institute brings a unique model of clinical care, family support and research to our community,” said David M. Labiner, the University of Arizona Department of Neurology professor and chair. “The development of this model of care associated with ground breaking research will be a unique asset in Southern Arizona.”
Funding for the memory and research center comes from philanthropic donations to the Banner Alzheimer’s Foundation. To learn more, click here.
