General Health Classes & Events
The care and safety of our patients, visitors, staff, and community is our top priority. In keeping with that commitment, and in light of government recommendations and the number of infectious diseases in our community—including COVID-19 and influenza—we have made the decision to cancel all classes and support groups at this time. Dignity Health hospitals in Arizona are dedicated to a culture of humankindness, and we believe keeping you safe and healthy is the best way to demonstrate that commitment. Thank you for your support and understanding.
