Arizona is home to quite a few healthcare entities that jointly employ a large proportion of the Arizona population. I was able to use Indeed.com to get a gauge for how many healthcare jobs are currently available at different employers. This gives a sense of the relative size of each employer.
You can see that Banner Health is by far the largest employer with approximately 50,000 employees and over 1,000 active job listings on Indeed.com. Banner Health is based in Arizona and it operates 30 hospitals and several other facilities across 6 states. Banner is the largest employer in Arizona and one of the largest in the United States.

|6||Phoenix Children’s Hospital||Hospital||Phoenix||317|
|7||Community Bridges Inc||Behavioral||302|
|11||Valleywise Health System||Medical centers||Phoenix||224|
Caveat: Note that employers with higher turnover will look larger on this metric because they simply have to hire more relative to their size.
