Banner Health, one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the U.S., has been recognized for coaching excellence by the International Coach Federation (ICF).

During a ceremony on June 28 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, Banner received the prestigious Prism Award for demonstrating a strong commitment to leadership coaching and integrating it into the fabric of the organization with positive outcomes.

The system owns or manages 22 acute-care hospitals, long-term care centers and an array of other services including family clinics, home care services, a nursing registry and home medical equipment services in seven states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada and Wyoming.
