We continue to shine five years later…
"I came into this program with a master’s degree in management
and with the expectation that I probably would not get much out of it.
I am now satisfactorily eating my words. Thank you so much for this wonderful
educational experience.” June 18, 2008
—Bea McKinley, RN, MS, CHCH-LTC – Manager,
Patient Care Services – Carondelet Holy Cross
Arizona Healthcare Leadership Academy sponsors and participants have many good things to say about the program. Here are some of the latest testimonials:
Front-line managers are excited about learning leadership...
“The Arizona Healthcare Leadership Academy has its roots in an
earlier project initiated by AzONE, AzNA and the Arizona Nurse Leadership
Competency Leadership Model. Those competencies are still an important
foundation for the Academy. I have watched the Academy grow to include
disciplines and managers outside of nursing and we at UMC have been very
pleased with the program. I had the opportunity to be a lunch speaker
at one of the Tucson programs, and it was quite inspiring to see our
front-line managers excited about learning leadership.”
— Marty Enriquez, Vice President, Patient Care Services, University Medical Center, Tucson
A standardized program with a solid foundation...
"St. Joseph's served as one of the hosts the first time the Academy
was held in Phoenix. We invited the Academy to Phoenix for a second time,
sending 15 of our managers from Nursing, Pharmacy, Occupational Health,
Environmental Services and Building Design. This allows us to provide
our leadership staff with a standardized program that gives them a solid
foundation as they move forward in their careers at St. Joseph's. The
feedback has been excellent, and we are planning another session with
the Academy in 06.”
— Patty White, Chief Operating Officer, S. Joseph’s Medical Center
The Academy exceeded our expectations...
“I remember sitting on the Campaign for Caring committee two years
ago and trying to understand what the proposal for the Arizona Healthcare
Leadership Academy was all about. How were the hospitals going to be
able to use what the educators were advising us? Well, the Academy exceeded
our expectations. We sent our managers to the first Academy and were
so pleased; we brought the Academy to Sierra Vista for 42 of our multi-disciplinary
front-line and middle managers. The program is of high quality and reasonable

Powerful, dynamic, insightful, enjoyable, reflecting...
“Described in five words: powerful, dynamic, insightful, enjoyable,
reflecting.... The academy helped me better prioritize and define my
goals as I develop into a leader, showed me how to access the tools
I need to meet my goals, and reminded me that through our experiences,
good and bad, we grow. I strongly recommend this course for anyone who
is wanting to make a difference in today’s society.”
— Patricia Hess, Clinical Coordinator, EAU/PPU
