As the leading nonprofit provider of health care in every community we serve, Banner Health is deeply committed to our mission: To make a difference in people's lives through excellent patient care.
As a nonprofit, Banner Health exists to provide health care services to the communities we serve, rather than generate profits. That means the every dollar we earn is reinvested into:
- new hospital beds
- new or expanding patient care services
- new technologies
- maintaining existing equipment and facilities
- paying employees salaries.
Banner also provides charity care through our Financial Assistance Program. In 2008, we provided more than $70 million in charity care.
In addition, we subsidize the medical education costs for hundreds of medical residents (physicians in training), the majority of whom will stay in Arizona and Colorado, where they trained.
Additionally, Banner provides important, free services like the Banner Good Samaritan Poison Control and Drug Interaction Center Hotline, health information provided by registered nurses through our Banner Health Call Center and school-based health centers for kids in economically challenged areas.
Clinics throughout the Banner Health system also help the working uninsured or under-insured by providing care at a reduced or sliding-fee basis (based on income).
