Every year, Phoenix Community Alliance honors leaders who champion for the betterment of humanity and the environment. The Center City Starr award is named in honor of PCA’s former president, Barry Starr, whose career exemplied the same leadership. For 2010, we awarded the Center City Starr award to Michael Ebert from RED Development, Dr. Michael Crow from Arizona State University, and Linda Hunt, President & CEO of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.
Linda Hunt was honored for her role in the expansion of the hospital and her efforts in creating partnerships with educational establishments and other health care institutions to benefit and expand health care services for the community. Last month, St. Joseph’s Hospital completed the collaboration with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, combining the two pediatric services and creating one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country. When accepting the award, she shared the recognition with the men and women who work at St. Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Center and thanked the neighbors and residents who look to St. Joseph’s for service. Ms. Hunt has a strong vision to make things a better place for all. We congratulate her and thank her for her leadership.
