The Arizona Hospital and Health Care Association kicked-off its annual Health Conference Thursday morning.
This year's theme: "Together towards tomorrow." It's an effort to better the health industry in Tucson. At Thursday's event there were hospital CEOs and executives sharing new technology with break-out sessions and roundtable discussions.
The conference was at the Rita Carlton Dove Mountain in Marana. It began at 11 a.m.
Governor Doug Ducey made the opening statement at the conference. He said, "We remember how important it is for us to unite around a common purpose and the power that happens when you do have that common purpose, mainly to care for and serve others."
Ducey also presented an award of excellence to Hospice of the Valley.
The conference is a 2-day event that will continue on Friday at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain.
