A Message to the Community
We will become a national leader recognized for clinical excellence and innovation, preferred for a highly coordinated patient experience, and distinguished by the quality of our people.
We believe this bold vision will be realized by Banner by clinical outcomes at all of our facilities that are in the 90th percentile of all hospitals. These outcomes will be aided through technological and process-driven innovation at the hands of our highly skilled and dedicated clinical experts and those who support them.
In this new era of health care reform, it will be essential that Banner Health ensure a highly coordinated experience for our patients that also is measured in the 90th percentile of all hospitals. Most likely this experience will begin in one of many outpatient settings – or even on Banner’s website.
Wherever a patient’s experience begins with Banner, we will provide for smooth transitions and superior service. Our clinical “backbone” is our enhanced suite of electronic medical records that includes computerized provider order entry and electronic patient identification.
Finally, achieving our vision of national leadership is only possible through the quality of our people. At Banner Health we offer a commitment to our employees that we call our Journey Commitment. Tied directly to our mission, our Journey Commitment states: We will make a difference in your life and career so that you can make a difference in the lives of others. We are fortunate at Banner that we truly are distinguished by the quality of our people thanks to a bounty of outstanding, dedicated employees and a nursing staff that is second to none.
The dedication of Banner Health’s people has already resulted in significant national recognition for leadership: In 2013, we were named one of the Top Five Large Health Systems in the nation by Truven Health Analytics. These, and other distinctions, make us feel gratified and proud of our colleagues throughout Banner.
We hope you will find this Community Update helpful in knowing more about Banner Health. In the meantime, good health from Banner Health!
