Make 2021 the year of gratitude: Honor your hero


Expressing gratitude is healing, both for the giver and for the recipient. We invite you to share your gratitude in 2021 through our Banner Health Hero program. Your gift honors the health care heroes who made life better during your stay while directly supporting patient programs and services that matter most to you at a Banner nonprofit facility. Each honored Banner Health Hero receives a certificate commemorating the thoughtful gift and a lapel pin to wear proudly. The Banner Health Hero award is presented by the employee’s supervisor during a shift or team meeting, bringing positive attention to your Hero among peers.

Did someone at Banner Health make sure you were especially comfortable? Provide excellent patient care? Share a laugh when you needed it most? Genuinely listen to your concerns?
