The mission of TMC is to deliver caring, personalized, quality healthcare to patients and their families in an environment that is supportive, education-focused and compassionate. And they deliver on that promise every day in every way possible. Join us to learn about the benefits of a community hospital – to our health and to our community. And does TMC actively work to make our community healthier? What kind of wellness outreach are they committed to and what has been the community response? How do you even go about making an entire community healthier? Innovation, creativity, and caring – hear about how TMC does it all. This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Medical Center.
