When starting a new business, a ‘breaking-in’ period is typical where owners get the word out about their products or services and slowly build a customer base. Hospitals are not so lucky. People become sick and suffer injuries every day and expect fast and professional health care – no matter how new the facility.
Since opening its doors November 1st, 2010, Banner Ironwood Medical Center at 37000 N Gantzel Rd. in San Tan Valley, has already treated over 20,000 patients and recently delivered its 500th baby. The 36-bed, full-service, acute care facility offers a variety of medical services including surgical, ER, OB, medical imaging, CT scans, MRIs and ultrasound. Having a full range of services is important to a community with a diverse and growing population, but getting patients out of the waiting room and in front of a doctor is what sets Banner Ironwood apart.
“We work very closely with Emergency Medical Services and other providers to provide the best care in as coordinated a manner possible,” said Banner Ironwood CEO, Deb Krmpotic, RN. “Our Door-to-Doctor’ average is about 10 minutes and we finished in the 98th-percentile in patient satisfaction. Providing the best service in the shortest amount of time is something we strongly believe in.”
Joining the San Tan Valley Chamber provides Banner Ironwood with a vehicle for communication with local businesses and individuals to spread the word about its services, as well as gather information about what residents look for in a hospital before becoming a patient.
“We are very impressed with the Chamber and have been welcomed with open arms,” Krmpotic explained. “It is a true leap of faith to trust someone with your health care and we are proud the community is using our services and seems satisfied with the results.”
“A hospital is a vital part of any community and Banner Ironwood has stepped right in and in a short amount of time, earned our trust through its excellent care,” added San Tan Valley Chamber President, Tisha Castillo. “Banner Ironwood is already a valuable member of San Tan Valley and will be a great addition to the Chamber.”
