Medical, health and wellness is the subject for this spring. Casa Grande is fortunate to have two major players in this field, Banner Casa Grande Medical Center and Sun Life Family Health Center.
Established in 1984, Banner Casa Grande Medical Center is a full-service, nonprofit, hospital committed to providing quality health care to the Casa Grande Valley as well as the surrounding areas in a caring and compassionate environment.
Their vision: “Comfort and recovery is important to our entire staff, which is dedicated to creating a healing environment for you and your family.”
In addition to providing patient care in its 177 private rooms, there is an impressive lineup of services available at Banner Casa Grande. These services provide the community with more convenient access to the latest products and state-of-the-art equipment like the Da Vinci Robotic surgery equipment.
Banner Casa Grande works and serves as the base station, providing direction to more than 12 emergency medical service providers in Pinal County along with the BannerAir helicopeter service based at the Banner Casa Grande Medical Center.
Banner Casa Grande doubled the size/capacity of its emergency room with an expansion and remodel. They have done an amazing job over the last two years in these very difficult times.
One of those emergency medical service providers is Sun Life Family Health Center. Sun Life is Pinal County’s largest primary health provider.
Patients have options in choosing a primary care provider based on personal preference, medical needs and provider expertise. Sun Life Health provides access to adult and pediatric primary care practitioners, behavioral health providers and dental professionals.
The health center providers are all board certified, with significant expertise and experience in their field of study. At Sun Life Health you have the option to choose between a doctor, a physician assistant and a nurse practitioner.
Banner Casa Grande Medical Center and Sun Life Family Health Center are gems in our community and should be thanked and appreciated! Both organizations work hand in hand to help with our community’s medical, health and wellness!
