About Sun Health Foundation


Sun Health Foundation is committed to bringing superior health care to the West Valley of the Phoenix metropolitan area. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we’ve served the local community for more than 50 years. To this day, we continue to support excellent patient care, conduct landmark research initiatives and provide health and wellness programs.

In the 1960s, when the first housing and population boom exploded in Phoenix’s West Valley, Sun Health Foundation, then known as Sun City Community Hospital, Inc., was established to bring critical health care resources to the community. Donations from the community 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 Sun Health hospitals. That’s when our Banner Health partnership was born, and Sun Health Foundation became the exclusive fundraising arm of these two medical centers.

Bringing Good to Our Community

Sun Health Foundation continues to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the local community by supporting the evidence-based services and programs offered by Sun Health Wellness.

The community health and wellness programs offered by Sun Health Wellness help deliver impactful, timely and life-altering services to the growing population in the West Valley. While we offer numerous classes dedicated to general fitness, such as tai chi and strength training, many of our programs also tackle some of the most common health conditions that affect our local community, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and more. In addition, we also offer programs for hands-on hospital transitions, spa-like massage and acupuncture services and free online education resources, just to name a few. Together, these programs provide the support, guidance and resources needed to offer comprehensive solutions to individuals in our community.

Sun Health Wellness services and programs are offered at little to no cost to the community, thanks to the passionate and generous support from Sun Health Foundation and its donors. To learn more about how you can make an impact, we invite to a Director of Philanthropy by calling (623) 471-8550 or visit the Sun Health Foundation website to learn more below.
