Banner Health issues another round of layoffs as it restructures operations

Phoenix-based Banner Health is laying off more employees, including its top public relations executive, as it restructures operations, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.

Banner first announced its restructuring efforts in February. The system said it wants to become more consumer-focused through the restructuring process, which involves changes to its leadership structure. In February, Banner eliminated some leadership positions.

This week, Banner issued a second round of layoffs, which includes the system's vice president of public relations Bill Byron, according to the report.

Because some of the employees affected by the layoffs may fill other positions within the system, it isn't possible to know the exact number of employees impacted by the job cuts, Jennifer Ruble, senior director of public relations at Banner, told the Phoenix Business Journal.
