Welcome and thank you for choosing Banner Thunderbird Surgicenter. This facility has been in operation since 1993. We still have some of our early employees. Patients love our facility and nursing staff as evidenced by the comments in the Patient Satisfaction Surveys. The difference is that our nurses are happy and do a great job, which leads to happy doctors and patients.
Our nurses are all Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certified (ACLS) and equipped to handle emergencies that arise. Some of our PreOp and PACU nurses are Pediatric Advanced Life Support Certified (PALS) as well.
