Before the advent of state-of-the-art medical facilities, the dry desert air of southern Arizona was recommended by doctors across the country for patients with respiratory problems. Today, in addition to its desirable climate, Tucson boasts some of the most sophisticated health care available in the country. The University of Arizona Health Sciences Center and the Tucson Medical Center, along with other full-service hospitals serve as testimony of the excellent variety of care in the greater Tucson area.
