Healthcare Alliance, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, announced the company has been honored with two prestigious Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) awards for its work serving Americaâ€™s Veterans. The ACE award recognizes the largest private companies by revenue, as well as the fastest growing and highest performing companies. TriWest was honored with awards in two categories - Arizona's Most Productive Private Companies and Arizona's Fastest-Growing Companies.
â€œWe are honored to be recognized for our hard work to support Americaâ€™s Veterans with vital health care services across the country,â€ said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. â€œServing Veterans is our sacred mission, and we are proud to have been dedicated to this important work for nearly 25 years.â€
Currently, TriWest partners with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to administer VA community health care for Veterans, including those in the state of Arizona. Since 2013, TriWest has administered VA community care, providing over 32 million medical appointments to Veterans with the goal of enhancing access to high quality care in the community. In 2019, TriWest experienced substantial growth as TriWest rapidly expanded services across the country until VAâ€™s next generation of community care â€“ the Community Care Network (CCN) â€“ could be fully implemented. TriWest ultimately provided VA with access to a consolidated nationwide network of over 710,000 community providers to serve Veterans in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
â€œPartnering with VA and community health care providers to expand Veteransâ€™ access to timely, high quality care is a patriotic duty that we take very seriously,â€ said McIntyre. â€œWe are very proud of our work to help strengthen the VA health care system as it matures to provide the best for our nationâ€™s deserving heroes.â€
TriWest serves Veterans by providing VA with a community-based provider network offering all primary and specialty medical services, including mental health care, and paying claims on a timely basis. Mr. McIntyre attributes the companyâ€™s success to the high performance of its employees, the commitment of TriWestâ€™s non-profit health plan and university hospital system owners, and the unwavering support of its expansive network of health care providers who continually stand up and answer the call to serve those who have served the nation in uniform.
â€œWe couldnâ€™t do this important work without the passion and commitment of our non-profit health plan and university hospital system owners, our 2,000 employees and our community care partners, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring our nationâ€™s Veterans receive the quality care they have earned, and so rightfully deserve,â€ said McIntyre. â€œWe will continue to innovate as a company, and we look forward to serving Veterans for many years to come.â€
