"Over my 23-year career, I’ve had the opportunity to work in five states. This is by far the most impressive coordination of community leaders’ (private and elected) efforts toward the greater good I’ve had the privilege to witness. When we became the first Level 1 Trauma center in West Valley, it was celebrated and supported by multiple communities and their leaders. Through effective WESTMARC Committee activities, I have had the opportunity to work closely with one of my competitors as we unite towards a common purpose in advancing the West Valley."
