It’s both an honor and a privilege to be recognized by our business peers for Sun Health’s commitment and accomplishments in 2015.

Sun Health has been a health care leader and mainstay in the communities that make up the Northwest Valley since 1970. It's also one of the area's largest employers.

The Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce recognized these accomplishments by presenting Sun Health with a Legacy Award for Business Excellence at the chamber's annual Legacy Awards luncheon, held Feb. 26 at Grandview Terrace in Sun City West. Sun Health won the award in the "Large Nonprofit” category.

The luncheon drew more than 120 guests representing businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes that keep the Northwest Valley economy humming.

Sun Health faced tough competition from several other “large nonprofit” nominees, including Adelante Health Care, Banner Olive Branch Senior Center and the Recreation Centers of Sun City West.

“It’s both an honor and a privilege to be recognized by our business peers for Sun Health’s commitment and accomplishments in 2015. We are truly grateful for this recognition,” said Sun Health Chief Marketing Officer Ron Austerlade.

Raoul Sada, CEO of the chamber, saluted all awardees and all nominees. “The chamber's role is to enhance the overall business community and to make the Northwest Valley a better place to work, live and play. The Legacy Awards recognize outstanding businesses that not only exemplify good business practices but also exemplify doing good in the community.”
