About Matt

A proven record of success as a physician, bipartisan lawmaker and public servant.

Dr. Heinz is known for his ability to build consensus and get results. There’s no one else as uniquely prepared to represent Southern Arizona.

Serving his patients. He’s been an attending physician at the Tucson Medical Center since 2003. There he treats patients with a range of diagnoses, from heart attacks and head trauma to chronic conditions like diabetes, PTSD and cancer.

Serving Southern Arizona. Elected to the Arizona State House in 2008, Dr. Heinz served two terms and was chosen by his Democratic colleagues to serve as caucus whip. In the House, he focused on seniors, veterans and healthcare issues, working across the aisle to write and pass key legislation, including:

He wrote the bill to make all medical complaints and patient safety information a public record, and broke the partisan gridlock in Phoenix to get it passed (Ariz. H.B. 2520, 2011; Ariz. H.B. 2545 (2010).

He stood up for our injured veterans so their benefits can never be seized by collectors (Ariz. H.B. 2348, 2010).

He helped secure health care for seniors who need it most by ensuring access to hospice care (Ariz. H.B. 2099, 2011) in a time of drastic cuts.

Serving his nation. From June of 2013 to March of 2015, he served as Director of Provider Outreach in the Office of the Secretary at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. At HHS, Dr. Heinz helped coordinate federal response to the Ebola virus and worked closely with healthcare providers implementing the Affordable Care Act.
