About Banner Health
From Alaska to Arizona, Banner Health is dedicated to fulfilling our nonprofit mission of making a difference in people's lives through excellent patient care.
Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona., Banner Health is one of the largest, nonprofit health care systems in the country and the leading nonprofit provider of hospital services in all the communities we serve.
Our Western Region facilities serve a number of rural areas -- many are the only inpatient facilities available within the community.
In February 2015, Banner Health marked a historic moment in its long history, with the completion of its merger with the University of Arizona Health Network in Tucson, Arizona, to form Banner – University Medicine.
This health system, anchored in Phoenix and Tucson, makes the highest level of care accessible to more Arizona residents. At the heart of this merger is academic medicine – research, teaching and patient care – across three academic medical centers.
Commitment to Excellent Patient Care
We are dedicated to strengthening our patient care by:
- Continuous focus on improving patient outcomes and service
- Development, training of an engaged workforce
- Use of innovative technologies
- Expansion of our facilities and services to meet community needs.
We have more than 39,000 employees, making us one of the country’s largest employers as well. In fact, Banner Health is a leading nonprofit employer in every community we serve. In our Arizona Region, we are the state’s largest private employer, and we are one of Northern Colorado's largest employers.
At Banner Health, we believe fully engaged employees are the foundation of providing excellent patient care. We value diversity and offer excellent career opportunities with great benefits for those looking to make a difference in the communities we serve.
