Well known for its commitment to advancing community health, supporting academic progression, and serving the people of Arizona for over 30 years, this organization has earned an excellent reputation. 

This Ophthalmology Clinic, regarded as one of the best in Arizona, has a long history of superior patient outcomes.

This means the Director will take on the daily activities of leading Clinical Operations, working closely with Ophthalmology M.D.s, and Technicians, and will also lead a large expansion project. This organization, currently made up of two Eye Centers and two Ambulatory Surgery Centers plans on adding two new Physician Practice locations and another location for Surgical Procedures.
