What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Treatment using HBOT and ancillary therapies

We set up a Private-Public partnership to provide funding for treatment of veterans at two privately owned and operated, six-person HBOT chamber locations, oone in Tucson (NorthStar Hyperbaric) and another in Cave Creek (HBOT of Arizona). These two large-capacity chambers can treat close to 300 patients annually. Other providers will be added as the need for treatment grows.

Healing Arizona Veterans (HAV) will pay to treat veterans at privately operated HBOT providers. The costs to fully treat a veteran are $12,000 (80 sessions at $150 per session). HAV will begin treating veterans as the donations come in. HAV will track cost and clinical indicators, before and after the treatment, utilizing mainly objective measures (MRI-DTI and others). After the first 50 veterans are treated, the results will be compiled and made available to current and future donors to demonstrate the returns they are receiving for their donations – “Treat and Track”.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Arizona’s approach is slightly different from other states. An effort has been made to set up a Private-Public partnership to provide funding for treatment of veterans at two privately owned and operated, six-person HBOT chamber locations, one in Tucson (NorthStar Hyperbaric) and another in Phoenix (HBOT of Arizona). These two facilities have treated over 100 veterans in the past 20 years, and have the capacity to treat 300 veterans annually. Other providers will be added as the need for treatment grows.

Healing Arizona Veterans (HAV) will sponsor the treatment of veterans at privately operated HBOT facilities. The average cost to fully treat a veteran is $12,000 which is smaller than the current costs of managing symptoms of around $15,000 annually. HAV will sponsor the treatment as the donations come in. HAV will track cost and clinical indicators, before and after the treatment, utilizing mainly objective measures. After the first 100 veterans are treated, the results will be compiled and made available to current and future donors to demonstrate the returns they are receiving for their donations. All HAV Board members and staff are volunteers. As such, 96% of all donations are used for treatment.

Very competent and motivated Volunteer Board and Volunteer Senior Staff.
The use of outside specialists to perform duties not within the capabilities of the Board and Senior Staff. All outside specialists are vendors not staff
Disciplined approach for screening veterans for sponsorship
Disciplined approach for financial management; bookkeeping, invoice auditing and marketing

Healing Arizona Veterans has sponsored fully the treatment of 40 veterans with TBI and PTSD since 2017, with "Life -changing" results

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
