Community Benefit

Tucson Medical Center was originally founded in 1943 by community leaders to address a local need for more hospital beds. Ever since its founding, our misssion has always been one focused on the health and well-being of the people in the entire region, and we take this mission seriously.

As some members of our community face challenges in the ability to access high-quality, safe care, regardless of ability to pay, they turn to acute-care nonprofit community hospitals such as TMC to receive their care.

Report to Community: Read more in our annual Report to Our Community as well as a Community Health Needs Assessment to better understand how Tucson Medical Center is dedicated to the people of Southern Arizona.

Community Health Needs Assessment: Tucson Medical Center joined with University of Arizona Medical Center and Carondelet Health Network to produce a Community Health Needs Assessment. This unique collaboration will help guide each nonprofit hospital system develop individual implementation plan. With input from staff, physicians, and hospital and community leadership, TMC released its Implementation in October 2012. For details, please click here.
