Marana News: MHC Healthcare celebrates 60 years


The Marana News wrote a re-cap from last week's MHC Healthcare Foundation’s 60th anniversary last Friday.

Clint Kuntz told a crowd of hundreds at the MHC Healthcare Foundation’s 60th anniversary last Friday that the organization started from a “little hut.” Now, MHC provides “healthcare with a heart” to about 45,000 patients at 15 sites across Pima County.

With its flagship, the Marana Main Health Center, the organization prides itself on being affordable to everyone and won’t turn anyone away, regardless of ability to pay for care. The gala’s keynote speaker Dr. Zubin Damania, aka ZDoggMD, fit right in.

Damania became an internet sensation after he started posting music videos on YouTube in which he parodied popular songs with his own lyrics. He entered the stage at the Ritz rapping, while one of his videos played on two big screens.

“You don’t usually see that performed in business casual,” he said as the song concluded. 

He also moonlights as a comedian, and his sensitive yet blunt humor around healthcare was not lost on the MHC crowd. He opened by talking about when someone first becomes a doctor.

“We’re idealistic,” he said. “We’re incredibly Disney. We barely curse.”
