Phoenix-based TriWest Healthcare Alliance held a leadership reception to celebrate the official opening of the TriWest Healthcare Alliance Administrative Service Center in Tempe. The opening of this facility is part of a company-wide workforce expansion and will bring 300 new jobs to Tempe, Ariz. As a partner to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), TriWest administers the VA’s Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) program which also includes the Veterans Choice Program (VCP). TriWest continues to see a significant increase in health care requests as more Veterans become eligible for the VCP.

“We are expanding our workforce to respond to this growth and we are actively seeking qualified candidates who are passionate about our mission to serve Veterans,” said Dave McIntyre, TriWest President and CEO, “It is our privilege to bring new jobs to Tempe. This addition of employees in Arizona will ultimately afford us the opportunity to ensure that we have enough staff to meet the needs of Arizona’s Veterans on a timely basis from here at home.”

TriWest is looking for talented people to fill a variety of positions in clinical and non-clinical roles to include patient services representatives, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, management and operations. The Tempe Health Care Administrative Service Center will help serve Veterans in 28 states. Key functions will include: processing health care authorizations approved by VA, inbound and outbound telephone correspondence with Veterans and health care providers, as well as scheduling appointments by phone.
