On Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, Banner Health Foundation will host the 59th annual Candlelight Capers Ball at The Phoenician Resort. This signature fundraising event will benefit the Graduate Medical Education program at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center.
Banner Good Samaritan is the teaching flagship hospital of Banner Health, offering some of the most sought after Graduate Medical Education programs in the United States. The Banner Good Samaritan residency program has played a critical role in training thousands of physicians since the 1950’s, including many who have established practices right here in our community.
When a health care need arises for you, your child or other loved ones, it’s important to have access to doctors you can trust – doctors who have received the best comprehensive training in their chosen fields.
At every Banner Health facility, the expert care provided by our staff and physician partners makes a difference each and every day. Whether we’re able to save one life or improve the health of a whole community through our programs and services, our focus is on providing excellent patient care.
And Banner Good Samaritan continues to train your physicians for the future. Each year, about 250 medical residents help staff the hospital on a 24-hour basis, learning from some of the top physicians and other care providers in Arizona. A resident physician or a group of resident physicians work closely with patients, their physicians, the nursing staff and other health professionals in planning, directing and providing patient care.
There are a variety of ways you can help - donate an auction item, purchase a table sponsorship or make a donation. There are a series of sponsorship opportunities available from $5,000 to $25,000.
