The Infectious Disease Center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix

Infectious diseases are caused by various organisms (such as viruses, bacteria, fungi protozoa and parasites) that overcome the body’s natural defenses. Some infections are difficult to diagnose and treat, or can become chronic and recurrent making them difficult to get rid of. At the Infectious Disease Center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix, we provide coordinated and specialized infectious disease treatment and care.

About the Center

At the Infectious Disease Center, we specialize in the diagnosis and management of common and rare infections including:

  • Viruses – HIV, CMV, Herpes viruses
  • Bacteria – MRSA, C.diff, prosthetic joint infections, oral infections, endocarditis, recurrent pneumonia or urinary tract infection, multi-drug resistant infections
  • Mycobacteria
  • Fungi – Valley fever (Coccidioidomycosis), Aspergillus, Candida
  • Protozoa and parasitic infections
  • Infections in immunocompromised hosts (including transplantation)

We continue to provide exceptional patient care through:

  • Education about your condition. Being diagnosed with an infection can be scary and confusing, we take the time to explain it, provide treatment options and expected outcomes.
  • Care coordination. Infections can spread to multiple parts of your body such as the lungs, heart, and bones/joints. We communicate with your other specialists and those at our other specialized institutes and centers to ensure a team approach to managing and treating your infection.
  • Outpatient intravenous antibiotic therapy.  For certain infections we can arrange outpatient therapy with a local infusion center or home health care company so you don’t have to come into the hospital.
