The Arizona End of Life Care Partnership (EOLCP) as a model of collaboration and collective impact

Sarah Ascher

Associate Vice President, Arizona End of Life Care Partnership
United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona

Bio for Sarah Ascher, M.S. is Associate Vice President for the Arizona End of Life Care Partnership (EOLCP) anchored at United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Sarah came into this role in December 2017, leading the EOLCP in its mission to enhance the way we live by fundamentally changing the way we talk about death and priorities for living. The EOLCP brings together health care, business, community-based organizations; and individuals dedicated to ensuring that people receive the care they desire at the end of life.
Prior to her current role at UWTSA, Sarah worked in health care systems for over 35 years, from clinical and program development work in Audiology and Neurorehabilitation to hospital leadership for Patient Experience. Sarah has held previous positions of Director of Patient Experience (Sidra Medicine in Qatar), Director of Service Excellence (Banner University Medicine-Tucson), Director of Patient Relations (University Medical Center-Tucson and South Campuses); and has served on the Boards of Directors for a number of community based organizations in Tucson.
Sarah’s passion for this work arises not only from her professional experience and focus on Patient Experience but also from a personal history of early losses and perspectives from different entry points into the End of Life Care ecosystem: Sarah experienced the death of her 51 year old mother to cancer at home when 15 years old; the death of her18 year old brother from suicide after one week on life support; and caring for her father in Tucson during his 7 year dementia journey, from diagnosis until death.
Sarah is passionate about bridging the worlds of health care and community, professionally and personally.
