Springdale-based nonprofit Arisa Health has hired longtime nonprofit executive Tim Hudson as its chief philanthropy officer. Arisa Health formed last year with the merger of four Arkansas-based behavioral health providers.
Hudson said his first day in the position is Nov. 30.
Since July 2014, Hudson served as executive director of Washington Regional Medical Foundation, where he was responsible for leading Washington Regional Medical System’s fundraising efforts and outreach programs.
Hudson had served since 2007 as director of development at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences-Northwest. Before that, he was executive vice president at Ozark Guidance Center Foundation, one of the four behavioral health providers that combined to form Arisa Health in 2019.
A University of Arkansas graduate, Hudson was founding president of the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
Hudson, a member of the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s 2000 Forty Under 40 class, has served on the Fayetteville Board of Education since 2004 and is currently its secretary.
