Infectious diseases are caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi entering the body. Often these illnesses can be passed from person to person.

At Banner Health, we diagnose, treat and manage infectious diseases. We specialize in:

  • Treating HIV infection
  • Bacterial infections, including pneumonia, endocarditis and abscesses
  • Infections in immunocompromised hosts
  • Valley fever
  • Outpatient antibiotic therapy

Many of Banner Health's facilities have doctors on staff who specialize in treating infectious diseases.
