TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The state Board of Regents is expected to vote on approval of the merger of the University of Arizona’s health network into Banner Health, a Phoenix-based nonprofit that operates numerous hospitals and other health-care facilities.

The regents are scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon in Tucson. The board voted last June to begin the merger process.

The university’s network includes two hospitals in Tucson, including one formerly known as University Medical Center. The network also includes numerous clinics and medical schools in Phoenix and Tucson.

Terms of the merger include Banner assuming the university network’s debt and investing millions in program and capital projects.
