Banner Del E. Webb and Banner Baywood medical centers have been named Accredited Heart Failure Centers by The Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium.
In 2009, Banner Heart Hospital became the first Accredited Heart Failure Institute in Arizona.
“As the only accredited Heart Failure Institute in Arizona, it is the obligation of Banner Heart Hospital to help all sister facilities within Banner Health achieve accreditation as Heart Failure Centers,” said Dr. Mark Starling, chief medical officer at Banner Heart Hospital. “This accreditation illustrates the commitment that Banner Health is making to provide outstanding care for patients with heart failure.”
Anthony Butcha, a senior RN manager at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City West, said the accreditation process “has sharpened our focus across the continuum of care. Becoming an Accredited Heart Failure Center demonstrates the commitment our entire staff makes to provide excellent care.”
