The History of Sun Health
Sun Health is an organization driven by passion—a passion to improve the health and quality of life of the communities we serve.
Our story began over 50 years ago, when a group of West Valley residents gathered in effort to improve the overall health and wellbeing in their community. Their support through Sun Health Foundation funded, built and opened Walter O. Boswell Memorial Hospital in 1970, and Del E. Webb Memorial Hospital in 1988. In 2008, Banner Health acquired both hospitals and our philanthropic relationship continued, with current fundraising efforts supporting Banner Boswell and Banner Del E. Webb medical centers and the Banner Sun Health Research Institute.
What began as a desire of a group of individuals to support their community has since prospered into a legacy of passion and giving. Today, Sun Health is comprised of Sun Health Foundation, Sun Health Communities and Sun Health Wellness—each one supporting the overall mission and vision of the organization.
