Arizona Business Magazine March/April 2012
The Healthcare Issue
Growing 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.
