Banner Health Statement on Former Employee

February 14, 2016

PHOENIX - As a health institution, patient safety is paramount to us and we certainly understand the gravity of the situation occurring in Colorado. However, as a matter of policy we are unable to comment on employee matters.

That said, we understand this situation may cause anxiety among some of our former patients, and we apologize for that. To address these concerns, we are are moving toward establishing a free testing program as early as possible for those surgical patients who were treated at the time of Mr. Allen's employment with us.
