The Robotic Cardiac Surgery Program at Banner Heart Hospital What makes Banner Heart Hospital’s robotic cardiac program unique? There are several factors. Banner Heart Hospital is one of the largest heart hospitals in the nation. It is dedicated primarily to the treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular disease only. Therefore, the nurses and all the staff are highly experienced and give quality care, which has been shown by our rating, our Thomson 100 rating for the last three years, which has not been met by any other hospital in Arizona. That’s a major part of it. We also are the only robotic program in the Southwest. We are one of the busiest programs in the nation, and because of this experience, because of our team approach, we provide those patients a unique experience in allowing minimally invasive cutting-edge technology to be used by the most experienced people and in a high-quality institution. I think those factors contribute to the very unique experience at Banner Heart Hospital.
