PHOENIX, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Retired Vice Admiral Donald Arthur, former Surgeon General of the Navy and commander of the National Naval Medical Center, former Assistant Secretary of the Army P.T. Henry and retired Army Major General Harold Timboe will continue serving the men and women covered by military's health care system as members of TriWest Healthcare Alliance's Executive Advisory Board.

TriWest's Executive Advisory Board is comprised of senior retired military officers, retired non-commissioned officers and military family members. They provide guidance to TriWest's leadership as the company delivers on the promise of the military health care program, TRICARE, to provide the highest quality of care and customer service.

"I'm happy for the opportunity to continue focusing on the values that make our military health care system great and for the honor of serving our Nation's heroes," Arthur said.

Dr. Arthur, a native of Northampton, Massachusetts, joined the Navy in 1974 and attained his Doctor of Medicine from the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He then served as Deputy Commander (Chief Operating Officer) of Naval Medical Center, San Diego and as Commanding Officer (Chief Executive Officer) of Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

He held the positions of Deputy Surgeon General, Vice Chief (Chief Operating Officer) of the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, and Chief of the Navy Medical Corps before assuming command of the National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland.

He is a fellow and past president of the Aerospace Medical Association and was president of the Association of Military Surgeons of the U.S. in 2005. He is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He was also the 2002 recipient of the American College of Healthcare Executives' Federal Excellence in Healthcare Leadership Award and 2002 Association of Military Surgeons of the U.S. Outstanding Federal Healthcare Executive Award.

Mr. Henry, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marines, served on the staff of two Secretaries of Defense and served on the staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. He is a former Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.

Dr. Timboe, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy is a family physician and combat medical leader. He retired from the Army in 2002 concluding a distinguished career, culminating as commander of Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He also served as Assistant Deputy for Health Policy to the Secretary of the Army. He recently retired from the University of Texas Medical School in San Antonio as a Clinical Professor and Associate Vice President.

"I am personally thrilled to have Dr. Arthur, the Honorable Mr. Henry and Dr. Timboe on our advisory board.
