At Sun Valley, we have turned the once grueling process of getting a green card into a clinical experience. Our facilities operate, look and smell like a family doctor’s office, with a team of physicians onsite at each of our locations five to six days a week. We work with an electronic medical record system that handles all data, including patient information, reminders for follow ups, referral program tracking, and communication channels that are paperless and HIPAA compliant. We also provide our franchisees with a comprehensive operating manual, both onsite and web-based training, and the support they need to be successful in this profitable industry.
Sun Valley aims to provide cannabis patients the nation’s finest certification experience, with a strong emphasis on professionalism and exceptional medical care. Focused on quality versus quantity, we reject the status quo culture of seedy, transactional clinics, and instead, insure that each patient feels cared for and safe.
The couple behind Sun Valley have a long history witnessing and advocating the benefits of medical cannabis. Living with psoriatic arthritis and attending college in Colorado, one of the founders got his medical card in 2005 and has experienced the certification process 11 times over the last decade to stay legal. A lifelong advocate of medical marijuana and a serial entrepreneur, when he and his wife moved to Arizona, they were outraged to see that there was little clinical process to getting a card: most clinics were lacking professionalism, organization, and focus on patient care. This fire was stoked by the loss of his mother and father within eighteen months of each other to pancreatic cancer and ALS, two diseases with numerous clinical trials that have demonstrated the benefits of cannabis. Unfortunately, his parents (both federal employees) never consented to try it. Wanting to help patients like his parents, and with his wife’s 15 year career experience in managing medical practices, in 2013 the founders built their first clinic with the money they saved for their honeymoon. In three short years, they have grown their practice in Arizona to three locations, serving over 15% of all Arizona medical marijuana patients (17,000 patients certified), and have just opened their fourth location in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, Sun Valley has recently launched the first and only legitimate franchise model in the ancillary cannabis industry.
