Rep. Andy Tobin Receives Award from Arizona Hospital & Healthcare Association
Last week House Majority Whip Andy Tobin (R-Paulden) was honored by the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA) with a Legislative Appreciation Award for going above and beyond the call of duty this past legislative session in support of Arizona’s hospital community.
“I feel extremely fortunate to be recognized by the Arizona Hospital Association. The importance of access to adequate healthcare in rural Arizona is an extremely important issue for the citizens I represent,” Rep. Tobin said. “I’m glad to know my support helped my community,” he added.
This is the third recognition award Rep. Tobin received this year for his legislative leadership on a myriad of political issues in 2009, including the Legislator of the Year by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
In addressing relationships with Rep. Tobin and other supportive members of the legislature, AzHHA President John Rivers said, “Working together, these lawmakers championed a fiscal year 2010 budget that protected hospitals and the patients they serve. They are dedicated public servants who deserve the hospital community’s recognition.”
