It starts with generous hearts.
It grows with brilliant minds.
It impacts the lives of millions.

Over the course of our history, thousands of people have played a role in founding, nurturing and dramatically shaping the evolution of medicine in the Southwestern U.S.

We express our profound thankfulness to those whose total contributions have reached or exceeded $1 million in giving the gift of better health to our community.
