Beginning in 2015, 12 veterans have been recognized each year for having made a lasting impact to our community and those who call it home. These veterans continued their military value of selfless service long after hanging up the uniform. We honor them for helping make Cochise County what it is today, with contributions ranging from campaigning for arts education in schools to creating ways to make health care more accessible.
Canyon Vista Medical Center and the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona recognizes those former or current residents of Cochise County who have worn the uniform of the nation’s armed forces and have substantially contributed to their community. Nominees should demonstrate their commitment to Cochise County through volunteering and community service. Nominations may be submitted posthumously.

Located in the beautiful high desert of southeastern Arizona, Canyon Vista Medical Center commits to serve residents in Sierra Vista, Ft. Huachuca, Cochise County – a population of more than 131,000 people, and our surrounding communities. We’re comfortably nestled in the San Pedro River Valley, 75 miles southeast of Tucson.
Canyon Vista Medical Center was founded in 1963 as Western Baptist Osteopathic Hospital on what was then the eastern edge of Sierra Vista. Growth and advancing technology dictated building our new 177,000 square foot hospital at 5700 E Hwy 90.
