Banner Health is even more impressive for its 
investment in healthcare commercial real estate to 
facilitate better patient care in the community. 



For the past two years Banner has pursued over 320 
active projects totaling almost $2 billion to improve 
the healthcare experience in the communities they 
serve across six states. 


 “We are investing almost $1 

billion dollars for new hospital facilities and clinics 
for our academic division,” says Kip Edwards, Vice 
President of Development and Construction for 
Banner Health. About $500 million of that will go 
to funding the Banner-University Medical Center 
Tucson, and $470 million has been allocated to the 
Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix, both in 
affiliation with the University of Arizona. 



really demonstrates Banner’s commitment to the 
Valley and the residents it serves,” Edwards says. 
“It is very consistent with our long-term view about 
healthcare and providing a full continuum of care.” 




strategic approach 

is centered on a belief 

that healthcare is moving 

away from a traditional fee-

for-service model and toward 

a value-based care methodology. 


 “Healthcare is undergoing a major 

transformation from a ‘sick-care’ system 

to a healthcare system,” Edwards says. 

“Population health is the solution.  

We assume the responsibility for a 

patient’s health on a risk basis, 

and we are investing in those 

areas that support health 

and bring access to 

care closer to  

the patient.”
