7:00pm Entertainment

For nearly 17 years... Maricopa Health Foundation hosted CopaBall, an elegant black-tie gala, supporting vital community programs and charitable funding needs at Maricopa Integrated Health System, now Valleywise Health.

Throughout its history, CopaBall celebrated the outstanding medical providers at Arizona’s public teaching health system and organizations whose legacy of giving supports community health in Arizona. In 2020, our new event, A Night in the Valley, replaces the traditional black-tie gala – and celebrates “all things Arizona,” our front-line health care heroes, and our community’s commitment to go ALL IN for Valleywise. Our “Arizona-chic” celebration, featuring special musical guests and audience engagement surprises, will be a live broadcast event in lieu of a large in-person gathering. Celebrating our front-line medical heroes, and the compassion, generosity and resilience of the Valley is more important than ever!

We invite you to join us for A Night in the Valley from the comfort of your own home.

To Our Community... Welcome to “A Night in the Valley,” a virtual event that brings together so many good friends to celebrate the exceptional care of patients and their loved ones throughout Valleywise Health. I want to recognize the dedication of the Valleywise Health Foundation for their ongoing and effective efforts that are a key component to fulfilling our mission exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time. This has been the most challenging year in our lifetime for health care across the nation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At Valleywise Health, I am honored to work with a team of more than 4,000 outstanding colleagues, many of whom serve on the front lines of this unprecedented crisis. The selfless acts of these colleagues and the support they receive from others, occurs throughout our system every day, and is an ongoing source of inspiration for all of us. Of course, working closely with our Valleywise Health staff are the outstanding doctors and other providers of District Medical Group. The excellent and compassionate care provided by our clinical colleagues was appropriately recognized this year with Valleywise Health being named an IBM Watson Health Top 100 Hospital. This prestigious award recognizes top-performing hospitals in the U.S. for excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health. Of the 100 hospitals honored, only 15 large teaching hospitals were named. Despite the challenging circumstances of COVID-19, "Care Reimagined," our plan to rebuild and reinvent our safety net system of care and teaching hospital, has continued to move forward. We have opened Valleywise Community Health Center – South Phoenix/Laveen and have transitioned the Valleywise Community Health Center – South Central into a Family Practice training clinic for physicians. We will soon open both the Valleywise Community Health Center – North Phoenix and the Valleywise Comprehensive Health Center – Peoria. These beautiful new facilities, with more to follow in the next two years, speak clearly to our ongoing efforts to provide care environments that our patients deserve.

Thank you for your support of Valleywise Health. Enjoy a memorable night in the Valley!

Steve Purves

President & CEO, Valleywise Health

Real heroes wear masks below their eyes.

You inspire us every day. Thank you.


How things have changed since 2019... Just one year ago, more than 600 of us gathered together to celebrate our community health care system. Our CopaBall 2019 theme was “A New Chapter Begins.” We unveiled our new name, “Valleywise Health,” and shared exciting plans, dubbed “Care Reimagined” to renovate and rebuild our aging hospitals and clinics. For those of you who joined us at the Camelback Inn in last year, tonight’s live broadcast is very different. Few of us could have imagined how our lives would change – and that our annual celebration would not be held in person. However, despite the unprecedented circumstances that got us to our live broadcast tonight, there has never been a more important and appropriate time to celebrate the medical heroes at Valleywise Health than now. While our public teaching health system has served Maricopa County for more than 140 years, just one year ago, our name and logo were brand new. Then came COVID-19 – and our health care heroes and YOU, our community heroes, stepped up to fulfill the promise of that new name. In fact, Valleywise Health REALLY stepped up! Our District Medical Group physicians and Valleywise nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, pharmacy, lab, IT and communications professionals, among many others, answered the call to educate our community about the pandemic. They shared important guidance on TV, radio, through YouTube videos and in the newspaper – to protect community health in numerous languages, with accessibility and transparency as a voice for all Valley citizens. And you listened…

Thanks to the tireless work and dedication of Valleywise Health professionals, over the past six months Valleywise Health and Valleywise Health Foundation have averaged between 25 and 30 percent of the market “voice” for hospitals in the metropolitan Phoenix area. That’s what a public teaching health system should do. It’s what Valleywise Health exists to be – a trusted voice in uncertain times, providing exceptional care for all who come to us, in good times and in bad. Our skilled and compassionate doctors, nurses and allied health professionals answered the call… and our supportive, generous community - showed them they were not alone. There is so much to celebrate, even in these strange and uncertain times. Thanks to all of you who are tuning in tonight to share in this historic evening honoring those who selflessly answered the call. Our first “A Night in the Valley” gala will reflect on a year of unprecedented challenge and celebrate a year of unprecedented compassion and support. Whether joining us from a small watch party, or in the comfort of your own home on a computer or mobile device at ValleyNight.org, on behalf of Valleywise Health Foundation and our board of directors, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy a night in our Valley!

With gratitude,

Nate Lowrie

CEO, Valleywise Health Foundation

Kevin Neal

Board Chair, Valleywise Health Foundation

Dear friends,

First, we would like to personally thank so many of you for your support of Valleywise Health Foundation, especially this year. Our family has been involved with the Valley’s public teaching health care system for more than 10 years, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the unprecedented community awareness for this jewel in the desert, humbly taking on our most critical health care needs for nearly a century and a half. In October 2019, we were proud to take on the roles of co-chairs of Valleywise Health Foundation’s first major fundraising campaign, helping bridge the gap between building funds authorized by Proposition 480 in 2014, and the costs of new and expanded programs to address the Valley’s unmet community health needs. Our ALL IN for Valleywise Campaign supports unique Valleywise Health programs in areas of distinct responsibility for our public teaching health system for ALL. They include...

Burn Survivorship Care

The Arizona Burn Center – Valleywise Health is among the largest and best academic burn centers in nation and Arizona’s nationally verified adult and pediatric burn center serving the entire Southwest. For decades, the renowned leader in innovation, research and would-class clinical care has existed and excelled in a confined disjointed space – not designed for the unique needs of our vast number of bun and wound care patients. Our new facility space is planned, yet our vision for world-class wellness and survivorship care calls for more…

Caring for Mind and Body Valleywise Health is the largest provider of inpatient psychiatric care in Arizona so our experts know healing the mind is just as important as healing the body. Our renovated and new hospitals and health centers are designed to offer behavioral health resources to everyone. The facilities are built, and others are underway, yet additional on-site experts and telehealth technology for integrated behavioral health will help us do more…

The mental health support our young people need...

Our mental health experts designed a pioneering treatment and support program for adolescents and young adults experiencing psychosis. Early treatment can reduce school and work disruptions, decrease hospitalizations, reduce legal interactions and lead to better overall physical and mental health for a lifetime. When treated early, most young people return to work and school, are engaged in meaningful relationships and activities and they maintain their family connections. The First Episode Center model is created. Our vision for excellence calls for more…

Education / Endowing the Future Valleywise Health is a public teaching hospital with one of Arizona’s largest and longest running physician training programs. More than 400 full-time physician residents (graduates of more than 60 medical schools nationwide) 875 medical students, 260 rotating medical residents and nearly 2,000 nursing and allied health students train at Valleywise each year. Valleywise offers high-demand physician residency programs – ranging from emergency medicine to adult and child psychiatry. In fact, in 2018, more than 1,700 medical school graduates applied for just 14 residency spots in our Emergency Medicine program.

Arizona is the 4th fastest-growing state… but ranks 44th

out of 50 in total active primary care physicians, meeting just 41.7 percent of its need.

To help us address this critical Arizona issue, Valleywise Health joined the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance, with District Medical Group (DMG), Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and medical Center and Creighton University. The Alliance is now one of Arizona’s largest Graduate Medical Education providers, playing a major role in the training of new generations of physicians and other health care professionals. Our world-class learners deserve world-class tools. After attracting new learners from around the country and the world, it’s critical to provide the training tools needed to succeed in an increasingly complex 21st Century health care setting.

Our teaching spaces are designed, but our vision for expanded training excellence calls for more… including high fidelity patient simulators, teaching technology and additional teaching staff…

Investment in our unrivaled mission, to teach and train tomorrow’s health care leaders, and to serve the underserved, will leave a lasting and indelible mark on the Valley. We’re grateful for those who have joined our ALL IN Campaign, particularly our Campaign Cabinet.

With its recent IBM Watson Top 100 Hospitals recognition and Arizona’s only Everest Award honoree, we’re extremely proud of the efficiency, effectiveness and leadership at Valleywise Health. With the completion in 2023 of the new hospital, including a world-class Burn Survivorship Center, Valleywise Health clearly takes its place as one of the “crown jewels” of Maricopa County.

We’re ALL IN for Valleywise Health, and we’re ALL IN this together.

Letitia Frye

Currently celebrating over 16 years in the auction business, and having raised over $500 million dollars for charity, Letitia Frye has truly earned her title as America’s foremost “Auctiontainer.” Letitia is able to effortlessly combine her expertise in entertainment, fashion, fundraising and her humanitarian efforts to help so many in need, and make a difference in peoples’ lives. After a devastating accident in which she was struck by a car while running, leading to a Traumatic Brain Injury, combined with the sudden death of the father of her children, Letitia decided to broaden her span beyond auctions in order to help more people. Ms. Frye is now a motivational speaker and published author of her book NO RESERVE, and believes that her passion for others is the secret to success in work and life. Letitia Frye has spent many years working with orphans in Haiti, Doctors in Hospice, spending time with hospital researchers, rescuing abused and abandoned animals, volunteering at various camps for children, and granting wishes through Make A Wish. She believes the only way to understand the mission of a charity or non-profit is to personally provide time and effort to help those in need. Letitia received the prestigious Babe Caylor Leadership Award in 2017 for her work with LGBTQ youth. Her most humbling honors have come with having two of the awards she received, that are now named after her, The 1N10 Letitia Frye Excellence in Fundraising Award, and the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital Letitia Frye Humanitarian Award. Although she works all over the United States and outside of the country, Letitia calls Scottsdale her home. Letitia has two beautiful children, whom she accounts for helping her to tackle every obstacle that has come in front of her, and for her continued success in all fields of her career.

It takes a village Valleywise Health: A strong voice during challenging times

answering the call H E A LT H C A R E


Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Valleywise Health has delivered on its mission exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time, and was recently named an IBM Watson Health Top 100 Hospital. From quickly transforming our Pediatric Emergency Department into the first intensive care unit for suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients, to launching in‐house COVID-19 lab testing and increasing telehealth capabilities, Valleywise moved swiftly to protect the health of each and every one of us – regardless of the neighborhood we call home. Valleywise acquired the Cepheid GenExpert, providing COVID test results in 45 minutes, allowing for less use of PPE for patients and providers while waiting for results. Valleywise also initiated an extensive telemedicine program in the matter of days and has now performed more than 80,000 telehealth consultations – representing nearly half the system’s visits since March. Working with District Medical Group physician, Dr. Michael Do, Valleywise filmed and distributed COVID-19 information videos in 10 languages to serve the Valley’s diverse refugee communities. Now with more than 150,000 collective views on YouTube, the videos helped educate communities about the pandemic in culturally relevant, understandable ways. Valleywise doctors and staff also created COVID-19 programming for local radio stations and newspapers in both English and Spanish.

We were among the first in the state protecting patients and providers with visitor restrictions and, through generous community support, implemented video visitations for patients — especially for end‐of‐life care. Our leaders collaborated with national, state and local officials to obtain protective equipment and supplies for health care professionals statewide and partnered with Central Arizona Shelter Services to provide a safe place for discharged homeless patients to recover.

New donors and significant gifts truly made an impact on the future of patient care at Valleywise Health.

Valleywise Health awarded $3,000,000 grant for simulated medical training... Valleywise Health has been awarded a $3 million grant from the Maricopa County Industrial Development Authority to assist in

developing a comprehensive medical simulation training program. The health care provider will use the funds to facilitate hands-on learning experiences for hundreds of medical residents and students with state-of-the-art technology in the heart of Phoenix, Valleywise Health’s Chief Medical Officer Michael White told KTAR News 92.3 FM. “It really allows us to create the environment where our health care professionals will be working,” he said. “We can recreate a hospital room, we can recreate a clinic room, we can recreate a behavioral health room. We will have all the equipment necessary in those spaces exactly like it would be in the hospital.”

“The NEW Arizona Burn Center - Valleywise Health will be a state-of-the-art facility, the epitome of excellence in burn care, THE burn center that every burn care professional would want to have.� Dr. Kevin Foster

Director, Arizona Burn Center

The Arizona Burn Center team had the luxury of designing the new facility from both the patient’s and clinician’s perspective, allowing us to bring the functions and features of world-class burn care into one location.

The new 75,000 square foot Arizona Burn Center will include: • A Welcome Center with Family Support • Trauma and Emergency Exam Rooms • Private ICU and Acute Care Patient Rooms • Hydrotherapy and Hyperbaric Therapy • Physical and Occupational Therapy • Psychosocial Therapy for PTSD • An Ambulatory Clinic and Urgent Care Areas • A State-of-the-art Wellness Center for rehabilitation therapy and long-term survivorship care • A Dedicated Pediatric Wing • A Children’s Room and a Teen Room • Dedicated space for research and medical teaching Investment in our community health care system and the new Arizona Burn Center allows us to engage our patients at the highest level. It gives the best clinicians in burn care the facilities they need to excel and provides patients with access to a full range of world-class care as they recover and thrive.

“Taking care of burn patients is complicated and resource intensive. The goal is for our patients to not only survive their burns, but to thrive in their recovery, and to return to their preinjury functions – their work, their families, their hobbies and things that bring them enjoyment. With these new modern and progressive facilities, our care team will be able to treat burn patients both acutely (in the hospital) and long-term as survivors continue their recovery.” Derek Murray, PT, MS, BT-C
