Our Magnet® Hospitals
Banner Health is proud that two of our largest facilities have received Magnet® designation.
In 2003, Banner – University Medical Center Tucson became the first hospital in Arizona to receive the Magnet designation.
Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix in downtown Phoenix, Arizona has received the designation for two consecutive review cycles.
The Magnet Program is a status given to health care organizations in recognition of excellence in nursing care.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center formally established the Magnet Recognition Program in 1994 to identify health care organizations that provide the best nursing care to patients.
