In Our Community
Banner Estrella Medical Center is proud to be a good neighbor to west Phoenix and the communities of Goodyear, Avondale and Buckeye.
Helping the Hungry
Banner Estrella Medical Center regularly supports the Agua Fria Food Bank in Avondale with bi-yearly food drives.
In past years, Banner Estrella associates, physicians, patients and visitors have collected more than 3,000 items of food for the Agua Fria Food Bank.
The donations help feed local families every day.
In Arizona, the need for food donations increases 20 percent in summer months; food donations decrease 25 percent. Look on Banner Estrella Medical Center's Facebook page for the next upcoming Food Drive.
Record-breaking bone marrow drive
Banner Estrella helped stage a bone-marrow drive in 2010 that registered more than 700 donors.
The event was held in support of Banner Estrella patient Johnny Garcia, who passed away in 2011. The hospital continues to support this life-saving opportunity by partnering with the Be the Match Registry, supporting the Light the Night walk for Blood Disorders and working with the AZ Donor Network.
