Judith Rich has been named president of TMC HealthCare, Tucson, Ariz.
Since July 2007, Rich, 55, has served as executive vice president and hospital administrator of the not-for-profit community hospital system, which includes Tucson Medical Center. The CEO role has remained unfilled for the past two years, when Frank Alvarez left the system after nearly a decade.
Rich was chief operating officer of TMC HealthCare from 2003 to 2005, and is a registered nurse.
Judy has done an outstanding job in the last two years in improving financial performance and building strong relationships with both TMC physicians and staff, Louise Francesconi, chairwoman of TMCs board of trustees, said in a statement. We are thrilled to make this announcement today.
