Az Business honors winners of Healthcare Leadership Awards

Az Business magazine honored winners of the 2015 Healthcare Leadership Awards Thursday in front of a packed house at the Arizona Grand Resort.

“The Healthcare Leadership Awards honor the women, men and institutions whose passion and innovation are saving lives, extending lives, and improving the quality of our lives,” said Cheryl Green, publisher for AZ Big Media, which publishes Az Business magazine.

Sponsors included Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Arizona Central Credit Union and CodeRed-I.

Here are the winners of the 2015 Healthcare Leadership Awards:

Behavioral health company of the year: Southwest Behavioral Health Services

Bioscience company of the year: VisionGate

Insurance provider of the year: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona

“The word visionary is thrown around often, but it’s not often that it really fits,” said Michael Gossie, editor in chief for Az Business magazine. “But that’s not the case with Peter Fine. He is a visionary. And it took a visionary to take two healthcare systems with very different histories and grow it into a healthcare company that generates more than $5 billion in annual revenue, operates 28 acute-care hospitals across seven states, and employs more than 45,000 employees in Arizona.”

In addition to the Most Influential Women in Arizona Business, Az Business also selects five “Generation Next” women who are making an impact on Arizona, even though they are less than 40 years old. Those women selected for 2014 are:

Anca Bec, 36, business development officer, Alliance Bank of Arizona
Alison R. Christian, 32, shareholder, Christian Dichter & Sluga, P.C.
Jaime Daddona, 38, senior associate, Squire Patton Boggs
Nancy Kim, 36, owner, Spectrum Dermatology

To select the best and brightest women to recognize each year, the editor and publisher of Az Business magazine compile a list of almost 1,000 women from every facet of Arizona’s business landscape — banking, law, healthcare, bioscience, real estate, technology, manufacturing, retail, tourism, energy, accounting and nonprofits. Once that list is compiled, we vet the list, narrow it down to about 150 women who we feel are most deserving, and then submit the list to 20 of their peers — female leaders from a variety or industries — and ask them to vote. If they want to vote for someone whose name is not on the list of those submitted for consideration, voters are invited to write in the names of women who they think deserve to members of this exclusive club.

Az Business also does not allow a woman to appear on the list most than once.

AZ Big Media supports animal rights

Scottsdale Living magazine and the Scottsdale Home & Garden Show, both products of Az Big Media, has been subjected to unwarranted criticism after ShapeUp US announced on 12 News TV on Saturday that they would be giving away live bunnies as prizes at the Scottsdale Home & Garden Show.

“While ShapeUp US will be conducting a health and wellness event for families at the Scottsdale Home & Garden Show, we never approved or would allow rabbits to be given away as prizes at any of our events,” said AZ Big Media Publisher Cheryl Green. “As long-time supporters of the Arizona Animal Welfare League, we are advocates for the humane treatment of all animals and would never allow the mistreatment or misuse of animals at any of our events.”

Beyond the health and wellness event, there will be hundreds of amazing vendors and features to explore at the Scottsdale Home & Garden Show. We invite you to download a free ticket at http://exposaz.com/tickets.
