Banner Cardiovascular

One person dies from heart disease every 34 seconds in the United States, making it the leading killer of both men and women—a position it has held for over 100 years. Cardiovascular diseases are on the rise nationally and have an outsized impact on elderly and low-income communities. As the population continues to live longer, the burden of age-related cardiovascular diseases and the need for specialized geriatric cardiovascular care have increased in tandem.

Banner has an unprecedented opportunity to significantly improve the cardiovascular health and quality of life of Arizonans and patients across the Southwest, now and in the future. Banner’s cardiovascular program aims to be the premier destination for differentiated services through clinical excellence, breadth of service offerings, superior patient experience, and value provided by an integrated delivery network focused on the prevention, early detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Combining our unparalleled expertise within this signature clinical program with a compassionate approach to behavioral and lifestyle interventions, we can improve quality of life, reduce disability burdens, and minimize health disparities in our communities.

Our challenge—and opportunity—lies in creating the infrastructure and environment that affords the time and space to transform patient care. We need to make unprecedented investments in our cardiovascular program to turn this full vision into reality. Your partnership is crucial to our success.

Through the campaign, we will build on our excellence in cardiovascular care with strategic new investments in clinical programs, facilities, innovative technology, academic fellowships, and patient support programs to bring the best care to Arizona.
