In 2020, we faced the unprecedented task of tackling a new challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, we saw our community come together, and together we are pushing through.
For more than 75 years, Tucson Medical Center has been a key part of the Southern Arizona community, building partnerships to provide exceptional health care that continue to meet the growing needs of patients and their families.
Together We Meet Patient Needs
We recognize the changing needs of our community and take the initiative to provide top-quality health care programs and services that specifically address those needs. It is equally important to make exceptional care with compassion accessible to the communities and individuals we serve through education, telemedicine and other programs and services.
Together We Make a Difference
The TMC Mega Raffle has raised nearly $9 million to date. These funds allow TMC to continue to invest in patient care services and programs that improve the health of the community.
Here is a small sample of how the TMC Mega Raffle is helping make a difference:
- Labor and Delivery received a new addition to its Simulation Center. Raffle funds enabled us to purchase a life-like baby, to join “Lacie,” a birthing simulator, to provide tools for valuable training exercises that help prepare for real-life situations.
- Continued funding for the TMC CardioVascular Center, one of the premier centers in the Southwest. This past year, a new state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization X-ray lab (cath lab) was unveiled, which provides physicians with high-tech imaging and minimally invasive procedures.
- We purchased leading-edge fluoroscopy equipment, giving physicians access to the latest technology for capturing moving images of the body to diagnose patients and determine the need for surgery.
Working together, we can make a difference for the next 75 years.

Below are some stories from previous years on how the TMC Mega Raffle has helped patient care programs at the hospital…
New on-site genetic counseling program
Imagine the empowerment of knowing your cancer risks early enough to take action toward prevention. That’s where genetic counseling at Tucson Medical Center comes in. The TMC High Risk Breast Clinic has recently started an on-site genetic counseling program specializing in oncology genetics.
New flouroscopy equipment means a more comfortable experience and less radiation
Having equipment that is specifically designed for children in a family-friendly setting is one way to ensure a pleasant experience. That’s why monies raised by the TMC Mega Raffle will pay for a new fluoroscopy machine and pediatric-themed suite in 2020.Learn More
