Banner CIO resigns; system seeks replacement

Phoenix-based Banner Health Senior Vice President and CIO Ryan Smith has resigned, completing his five-year tenure July 19, the health system confirmed to Becker's Hospital Review.

Mr. Smith joined Banner in 2013 after a 20-year career at Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare, where he held numerous IT-related leadership positions. He left Banner for a new opportunity in Utah. 

The 28-hospital system posted a job listing on its website seeking Mr. Smith's replacement.

Candidates "must have experience as an executive leader in similar same size [and] scope of [the] organization" — specifically, 10 years of progressively responsible managerial experience and a minimum of five years at the senior management level. Interested applications must also have completed a master's degree in business, health services administration or a related topic.

Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer Bryan Kissinger, PhD, and Vice President of Clinical Applications Geoff Duke will serve as co-interim CIO until a permanent replacement is identified.
