The Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA) today presented Judy Rich, president and CEO of TMC HealthCare, with the Association’s 2012 HOPE (Honoring Our Professionals for Excellence) Healthcare Leader Award.

Selected by AzHHA’s HOPE Awards Committee, Ms. Rich is an exceptional president and CEO with an impressive record of giving back to the community and motivating others to do the same. She has led the creation of Arizona Connected Care, a southern Arizona Accountable Care Organization, whose purpose is to bring providers together to improve the quality of care to area residents. Ms. Rich is a patient advocate first and she ensures quality of care is the top priority by creating an open environment regarding adverse events and identifying and correcting the root causes.

“Judy Rich is well-deserving of this honor as she is highly regarded among her peers in the healthcare industry,” said Laurie Liles, AzHHA president and chief executive officer. “She brings energy, vision and inspiration motivating others to strive to achieve the highest level of patient care.”

Ms. Rich served as the United Way Chair for 2011, and is also on the board of Tucson Regional Economic Opportunities, board member of Volunteer Hospitals of America and board member of EMERGE, the center for domestic violence.

As an AzHHA board member for four years, Ms. Rich has shown great leadership and the ability to unite hospital executives with the goal of improving the health of Arizonans. She is the current AzHHA vice-president and has served on numerous AzHHA committees.
