We Are All Stronger Together

On October 1, 2019 Canyon State Credit Union and Deer Valley Credit Union celebrated their merger. Many of the same strengths and values that brought us together are present in the ways that our friends at Southwest Healthcare Credit Union serve their members.

Therefore, it is with great excitement that we announce the proposed merger between Canyon State Credit Union and Southwest Healthcare Credit Union!

On April 5, 2020 we announced a proposed merger with our friends and respective colleagues at Southwest Healthcare Credit Union. This mutually beneficial merger will combine our two cooperative financial institutions so that we can:

  • provide a greater selection of products and services
  • provide additional conveniences
  • strengthen our community impact
  • and offer members an expanded branch network with nine new locations!

Both credit unions are very happy about the opportunities this merger will bring for all of us. We hope you join us in embracing this collaborative initiative to help create a more prosperous future for both memberships!
