Atlas Healthcare Partners, in partnership with Banner Health, today announce the addition of new ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) in Chandler, Tucson and Northern Scottsdale, Arizona. This brings the total to 24 Banner Surgery Centers in Colorado and Arizona for the Banner/Atlas Healthcare Partners Network. The rapid addition of centers has dramatically increased access to high-quality, affordable and convenient healthcare in the region. The need for such healthcare is critical given the rapid growth occurring in these metropolitan areas.
"As the industry shifts towards outpatient care, ASCs play a vital role in providing patients with expert care outside of the main hospital setting," said Banner Health VP of Ambulatory Services Joan Thiel. "This growing network increases accessibility for patients to receive expert outpatient care closer to home. Our unique partnership with Atlas is built on the power of collaboration, with Banner and our physicians working closely every step of the way to create a great culture and working environment."
The three additional ASCs in Banner/Atlas Healthcare Partners Network are:
"Banner Health and Atlas work hard to create a truly integrated partnership with our physicians to ensure the highest quality care is delivered to every patient through our company-wide focus on the patient and physician experience," said Atlas Healthcare Partners CEO Aric Burke. "This continued growth and expansion is crucial to implement Banner's vision for affordable, convenient high-quality care throughout Arizona and Colorado. We are excited to continue our growth into 2022 and beyond."
