Terros Health, an Arizona integrated health care company for more than 50 years, is looking to the future following a planned leadership transition.

After a comprehensive succession planning process, Terros Health’s board of directors has promoted Dr. Karen Hoffman Tepper, the company’s chief operations officer for the past eight years, to president and CEO.

Tepper will assume her new position on May 6, 2022, from Peggy Chase, who will retire after leading Terros Health to local and national prominence during her 23-year tenure with the company.

“Terros Health is a vital resource, especially with a growing number of people seeking primary care and mental health services,” said Calvin Cole, chairman of the company’s board. “We will be losing one of our most valued assets in Peggy Chase, and we are fortunate to have in Karen Tepper a visionary leader with a proven track record of driving positive outcomes for our patients and our communities.”
