Care begins with a safe place. As we go about our daily lives today, we all want to feel secure. That's especially true when it comes to the places where we get our health care.
And, it’s why Banner is committed to making all of our locations a safe place for care.
Whether you need to see your doctor, have an elective surgery, or receive any other routine or urgent health service, you can rest assured that we’ve taken all the steps we can to protect you and those you love.
Banner is making sure you don’t have to choose between safety and getting the care you need.
That’s a promise we put into practice. Here is what you can expect, at a minimum, in any of our locations to ensure that you’re in a safe place for care.
