Banner Health today announced the acquisition of Desert Vascular Specialists, a physician practice located in Chandler, Arizona. As a result of the acquisition, two vascular surgeons and one physician assistant will join Banner Health’s medical group.

Paul Vaughn, MD, FACS and Daniel Miller, DO, RPVI – board-certified vascular and endovascular surgeons – and physician assistant Jennifer Maldonado will start seeing patients at Banner on March 2.

 “We’re excited to have Drs. Vaughn and Miller and their office staff join our team,” said Pat Rankin, MD, chief executive officer of Banner Medical Group. “They have been part of Banner’s physician network for many years and are highly regarded amongst their peers.”  

The providers will maintain their existing office, located at 1940 N. Alma School Rd. Chandler, Arizona 85224. They will perform surgeries at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona, and will also have privileges at Banner Ocotillo Medical Center in Chandler, Arizona following the opening of the hospital in November 2020.
