Amy Perry sits down with HealthLeaders ahead of taking the reins of the health system.

Banner Health will welcome a leadership change this summer when current president Amy Perry takes charge.

Perry will replace longtime CEO Peter Fine, who is set to retire after 24 years, and bring with her a refreshed approach that aims to both build on Fine’s legacy and push the health system to new heights.

Perry joined the HealthLeaders Podcast this week to offer insight on tackling the biggest pain points facing hospital CEOs right now and delivering on Banner’s mission statement of “making healthcare easier, so life can be better.”

“When we look at our mission statement, it’s not only about the patients we serve or the members we insure, it’s about the people who deliver that care—our physicians, our nurses, our workforce,” Perry said. “We need to make it easier for everyone to be able to access care, deliver care, make it more affordable. That’s how we define being that trusted health partner.”

Check out the podcast to hear how Perry is strategizing for that mission, which includes investments in technology to “facilitate a different kind of work stream.”
