A special message from our CEO, Rich Boals
It's a big year for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. We're taking 12 months to celebrate our first 75 years, reflecting on the successes and challenges that have created our story over three quarters of a century.
We have been part of the Arizona fabric since 1939. During those years, we saw the Great Depression, World War II, manned space travel, the Beatles, the civil rights movement, the World Wide Web – and so much more. However, by working together, staying true to our customers and our core beliefs, we have continued to be a successful and vibrant organization.
But we couldn’t have 75 successful years without you!
I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to all the Arizonans and local businesses which have supported BCBSAZ over the years. That support has been important to us and our local communities.
Our commitment has always been, and will continue to be, the same - to improve the lives and health of our members, as well as all Arizonans. That is why we care about the relationships formed with customers and why we want each of you to feel you’re part of our family.
Thank you to our employees
Throughout the past 75 years, our employees have played a critical role in BCBSAZ’s long history of providing the best value in health insurance. I offer my respect and gratitude to those who have ceaselessly continued their efforts to better our organization.
Please join us
Please join us all year throughout Arizona in celebrating this historic milestone. During this time, you will be able to learn more about our history in Arizona and, more important, to get a glimpse of our future.
