Banner-University Medical Center Sets Up 'One-Stop Shops' For Specialists

Banner Health is trying something a little different, when it comes to getting its patients the specific care they need.

It’s set up specialized health-care institutes around Banner–University Medical Center in Phoenix, in areas including heart, lung, urology and digestive care. Subspecialist centers are inside each of those institutes.

With me to talk more about this approach is Dr. Steve Narang, CEO of Banner–University Medical Center.
