Ty was born in Bradenton, Florida and at a young age, his family moved to Channelview, Texas. At 27, he moved to Arizona with his lovely wife, Rebecca, now of 37 years. He was always on the construction side of things. Figuring things out as he went. Ty and his wife left Arizona for a brief six months to Oregon, only to return to the Valley of the Sun after a short period of time. Ty has been with AMSC since 2011. His history in construction has been an asset to our hospital and he sure works hard to keep AMSC looking great! Ty enjoys his time outside of work with Rebecca, reading God’s word and oh yes, his blue flamed Corvette.
