Banner Health To Cut Jobs As Part Of Restructuring Efforts

Banner Heath announced its cutting jobs. The changes are part of the organization’s restructuring efforts.

In a statement, Banner said the cuts will impact about 1 percent of its overall workforce.

Earlier this year, Banner announced that it consolidated some of its leadership positions. Banner Health CEO Peter Fine told The Arizona Republic that Banner aims to reduce costs and respond to the health industry's changing financial picture.

Banner operates 22 hospitals and several specialized facilities. It is Arizona's largest private employer.
