Banner Health acquires 32 urgent care centers in Ariz.

Phoenix-based Banner Health has purchased 32 urgent care facilities in Arizona from retail chain Urgent Care Extra.

The recently added urgent care centers, which officially become part of Banner on Oct. 1, bump the health system's overall number of urgent care facilities in the state to 50. New signs will re-brand the centers as Banner Urgent Care.

"We are very excited to extend the Banner brand to these numerous locations," said Becky Kuhn, executive vice president of community delivery for Banner Health. "We know that urgent care is valued for convenience, quality and affordability for routine care. And now, consumers at these urgent care centers can also count on the comprehensive services and support of Banner Health should they require a higher level of care."

More than 400 Urgent Care Extra employees will join the Banner Health workforce on Oct. 1.

With more than 40,000 employees, Banner Health is Arizona's largest private employer.
