About Us

A Journey of Healing

From its modest beginning in the agricultural fields of Somerton, Arizona to its current position as healthcare leader with 17 clinics and entry points across Yuma County, Sunset Health has cultivated a legacy of service, compassion and excellence.

Our Origin

The organization began to receive funding through a Public Health Service grant to the Yuma County Migrant Health Program in 1972, when it provided services out of a trailer stationed near migrant work camps. It began operating under the name of Valley Health Center in 1976, and formally became Sunset Community Health Center in 1997.

Today, Sunset Health employs more than 300 professionals, 35 of whom are providers, who collectively serve the needs of nearly 30,000 patients across 17 clinics and entry points. Sunset Health remains a vital part of the healthcare safety net, and continues to expand in order to strengthen its position as the Place for Optimal Health.


Sunset Health is a migrant and Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC) that receives funding under Sections 329 and 330 of the Public Health Service Act. The organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit governed by a 12-member, all-volunteer Board of Directors.
