Report: Two Arizona hospitals ranked best in the nation
PHOENIX — Two Arizona Banner facilities have ranked among the best in the nation.
Banner University Medical Center-Tucson and Banner University Medical Center-Phoenix were both ranked in a recent list of top 100 greatest hospitals in America, according to Phoenix Business Journal.
The facilities are the result of a partnership with Banner and University of Arizona’s College of Medicine, which began a 30-year academic affiliation deal last month.
Kathy Bollinger, executive vice president of Banner University Medicine, said the partnership will allow the facilities to flourish in a necessary way to serve the community.
“We are confident that by combining Banner Health’s tradition of clinical excellence with the innovations of academic medicine, we will propel these already outstanding hospitals to new heights in medical research, education and patient care,” Bollinger said. “We see endless possibilities in this partnership with the University of Arizona to transform health care in our region and serve the people of Arizona.”
Becker’s Hospital Review, who published the list, used research conducted from several hospital ranking sources, including U.S. News & World Report and Truven Health Analytics, to create it.
