President and CEO, Banner Health
Leading Arizona’s largest health system has been a major challenge during the coronavirus pandemic. The state has been a hotspot for months. Banner’s overall inpatient net revenue was down 0.7% in the first half of 2020 compared with the 2019 period. During peak months in the summer in Arizona, Banner was caring for 1,020 COVID-19-positive patients across its hospitals. Fine has been a vocal supporter of public health measures to slow the spread of the disease, including urging state policymakers to implement social distancing and masking mandates.
