The Healthcare Issue

Michael Gossie profileGrowing up as the older brother to one sister with mental disabilities and another who passed away far too early, I spent way too much time in hospitals when I would have rather been doing ANYTHING other than waiting for my sisters to see yet another doctor. What I did
accomplish, though, was gaining a tremendous amount of respect for the men and women who devote their lives to making our lives better.

So it’s only natural that our healthcare issue, where Arizona Business Magazine honors the
recipients of our Healthcare Leadership Awards, is very dear to my heart. This year, a year in which our state turns 100 and the Maricopa Medical Society turns 120, it’s only fitting that the Healthcare Leadership Awards bestows its first Lifetime Achievement Award.

Inside this issue, you can read about David Lincoln — whose family name is synonymous with healthcare and philanthropy in the Valley — and the exceptional men, women and institutions who earned Healthcare Leadership Awards. They lead an amazing field of extraordinary
and accomplished candidates.

The last place most of us want to be is at a hospital. But knowing there are exceptional professionals like our Healthcare Leadership Award winners eases the pain.

Lifetime Achievement Award

David Lincoln And The Lincoln Family

HCL Awards 2012 - Joan and David LincolnDavid Lincoln and the Lincoln family are more than the namesake of the John C. Lincoln Health Network, with its two hospitals, multiple physician practices, and community services programs, which include a children’s dental clinic, a food bank and a community health clinic. The Lincoln family has nurtured an organization that grew out of a church mission to help Sunnyslope’s neediest residents in the 1930s into today’s locally owned, not-for-profit health care network.

For more than 45 years, David Lincoln has worked diligently to preserve and perpetuate the community healthcare philanthropic legacy of his parents, John C. and Helen Lincoln, and to create his own legacy that is being passed on to his adult children and grandchildren.

David Lincoln has been on the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation Board for 33 years and recently became an emeritus board member of the John C. Lincoln Health Network board, marking 45 years of service there. Now in his 80s, he continues to take his day-to-day board responsibilities seriously, reading every document and offering sound advice and wisdom on the future of the Network. He walked with the John C. Lincoln team in the October Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and he and other family members attend fund-raising events and other hospital events as well.

The Lincoln family’s unparalleled financial commitment to healthcare in the Valley continued in 2011, when they donated $4 million to renovate the lobby of John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital, which was built in the 1950s.

Employees of the John C. Lincoln Health Network take pride in a family that continues to take interest and care in their achievements and in the health of the community. More importantly, David Lincoln and his family continue to set the tone for the Network’s ethical practice. At a time when hospitals face intense financial pressures in caring for patients, there was no question about whether the Network would continue to respond to the broader needs of the community through its food bank and other community services.
