Arizona Community Specialists was formed in 2006, but our Southern Arizona roots reach back much further.
The partner organizations that makeup Arizona Community Specialists today were originally separate surgical practices in Tucson. The founding partners, Southwestern Surgery Associates, has been in continuous operation in Tucson for more than 40 years. The founding doctors came together to form a shared vision.
Exceptional care and service, without exception
In the face of rapid change, increasing use of technology in healthcare and a greater need to coordinate patient care, they believed they could provide better care by coming together to form a larger group – pooling resources to increase efficiency and share best practices. In the years since we have demonstrated the wisdom of that original decision.
From our beginnings with just two locations and ten surgeons, we have grown to more than 30 providers in many offices around Tucson and Southern Arizona. Our team provides services at clinics in a number of outlying communities, including Green Valley.
Our surgeons include specialists in general surgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, colorectal surgery, endocrine surgery, surgical oncology, breast surgery, joint surgery, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery and sports medicine. We operate at every major hospital in Tucson as well as a number of free-standing surgery centers. Each year we perform more than 10,000 surgeries and assist thousands more patients with successful non-surgical options for treating their conditions.
Our commitment today is the same as it was in 2006 – to be the premier provider of surgical services in Southern Arizona. We believe in partnering with our patients, our medical colleagues and our hospitals to provide excellent, efficient care with quality outcomes.
