Executive Director Member Health Services
Kelly A. Raach, MBA, Executive Director Member Health Services
Long before earning her MBA at University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management in 2015, Kelly began her career in health care in 2006 as a community relations manager at a residential setting for dementia care. There Kelly worked closely with her mentor Terri Waldman, MSW on every facet of day-to-day operations, developing a deep passion for helping families navigate their dementia journeys.
In 2012, Kelly channeled her energy, skills, experience and passion to serve a much larger customer base as Southern Arizona Regional Director for the Alzheimer’s Association. There for 3.5 years, she further honed her skills in organizational leadership, greatly expanding the organization’s volunteer base, public profile, funding sources, training and support services throughout Southern Arizona, ultimately improving the quality of care for those living with dementia and their caregivers.
In the ensuing four years, Kelly became the key strategic executive for Carondelet Health Network, utilizing her expanding skill set to produce results for the four-hospital network in physician recruitment, service line growth and clinical integration. Kelly’s career came full circle when she joined The Hacienda at the Canyon to assume the position inaugurated by Kelly’s original mentor, Terri Waldman who was called to serve elderly patients recovering from COVID at Harmony House.
Kelly’s passion for serving those living with dementia; her ability to recruit, train, reward and continually inspire our Naya caregiving team; and her skill at orchestrating the wide variety of health and wellness partnerships that support our Hacienda family will surely bring lasting benefits to our members, families and colleagues.
