[Source: The Arizona Republic] – Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center could soon start its face-lift.

The Scottsdale Planning Commission unanimously approved Scottsdale Healthcare’s rezoning request that would allow for expansion and improvements at the nearly 50-year-old hospital downtown.

Commissioners roundly praised Scottsdale Healthcare’s proposal when they considered the case on Wednesday. They were so supportive of the request, they also recommended Scottsdale Healthcare be allowed an additional 10 feet in height for two new main patient towers. The expansion could add more than 240 beds to the Osborn Medical Center, bringing the total to more than 630.
