Banner Health is an Accredited Heart Failure health system in Arizona, with Banner Heart Institute being one of the first in the nation.
Heart failure is the No. 1 reason for hospital admissions for those over 65.
Banner Heart Hospital's team works with patients and their family to determine the best treatment for heart failure patients.
We are pioneers in “transition planning”, making sure our patients get intensive follow-up care that allows them to stay at home rather than be readmitted to the hospital.
Other benefits of our system:
- Streamlined approach that improve patients’ quality of care in the hospital
- Our transition planning takes place throughout our patients' entire stay. It prepares them for a successful return home and through their first visit to the doctor’s office
- We educate patients as well as family caregivers so patients can be more independent and avoid return hospital stays.
We received accreditation from the Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium after a review of our:
- Current practices
- Gap analysis
- In-depth interviews
- Clinical process mapping
- An onsite review
- A comprehensive milestone report with specific action steps
