I attended a groundbreaking ceremony that was held on the Kino Campus of University Physicians Hospital for a new behaviorial health pavilion and crisis response center. Now the citizens of South Tucson will have a state of the art facility close to home. This collaboration involved Pima County, the voters (who approved the funding bond), the hospital's parent entity (UPH), the Community Partnership of Southern Arizona, and the U of A.
As you would expect, the tent was filled with many beaming elected officials (November 3rd is just a few days away!). The tent was also surrounded by an impressive showing of police & firemen - the first responders who work hand in hand with all hospitals to render emergency health services.
