Impact Stories

We are proud of our team’s determination to implement our longstanding mission of fostering and championing the health and wellbeing of those living in our community. Meet some of the community members whose lives were forever impacted from participating in our health and wellness programs, classes and support groups.


Linda K.

Since taking Diabetes Self-Management Education program at Sun Health Wellness, Linda’s blood sugar numbers have improved and she has lost a total of 18 pounds by following the advice of the program.

Nancy U.

Nancy Urbach has called Arizona home for more than two decades and loves the life she carved out for herself in Sun City West volunteering, enjoying friendships and, most recently, writing her memoir.
Sun Health has been a big part of that life.

Heather V.

Heather feels comfortable knowing that she is receiving services from Sun Health, a trusted and respectable name in the community, with licensed and professional staff who go above and beyond to assist clients.

Lorraine R.

As Lorraine’s mother’s memory issues progressed, she is more and more grateful for the Memory Care Navigator program. The program is supported by generous donations to the Sun Health Foundation.

Norma Radke

Norma Radke is lucky to have family nearby but when she wound up in the hospital twice, she also had additional support through Sun Health’s Care Transitions program. In-home visits with nurses and follow-up phone calls put Norma’s mind at ease as she recovered in her apartment. It’s a service she highly recommends to others in need.

Berna Veach

Sun Health Center for Health & Wellbeing prides itself on its staff who go above and beyond to ensure their clients feel welcome and get the help and support they need to live healthier, happier lives.

Shirley Cooper

Shirley Cooper knew heart surgery was coming someday, she just didn’t know when. Ultimately, Shirley needed an aortic valve replacement. While at Banner Boswell Medical Center, she learned about something else that would be vital to her recuperation: Sun Health’s Care Transitions program.

Norma Wilson

Norma, a longtime Sun Cities resident and former data processing manager for a wholesale distributor, wanted all of the information and referrals that she could get as she struggled with memory loss.

Benny Tarber

Benny, a veteran, had enjoyed a long career as an accounting manager at the Arizona Department of Economic Security. He had once been honored as the Employee of the Year for the state of Arizona. With the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, Estene and Benny worked with Sherry and the navigator program to figure out how their new life would look.

Les Bonde

When Les returned home from the hospital, he was lucky to have his own personal nurse in wife Jean, who was a parish nurse for many years. But the couple had additional support, too, through Sun Health’s Care Transitions program.

Samantha Blaine

For Sun City West resident Samantha Blaine, massage therapy through Sun Health’s Center for Health & Wellbeing is one of the “tools” in her toolkit for health.

Susan Hershberger

Diabetes runs strong in Susan Hershberger’s family and she was determined not to go down that road. She had tried different programs, and nothing seemed to be a good fit for her. However after finding out she had prediabetes, her doctor told her about the Diabetes Prevention Program from Sun Health Wellness.
