  • About Leo Kent

    Who is Leo Kent?

    Dr. Leo Kent moved to Tucson from Chicago with his wife Bonita, and daughter Katherine Ann ("Muffin") in 1946. He was an internal medicine doctor and a major contributor to the Tucson community. Leo loved Tucson and he was devoted to the growth of medicine and leading within civic organizations, such as the the Pima County Medical Society and the Arizona Medical Alliance with Mexico.

    The Leo Kent Hotel, developed by Leo's grandson, Tyler A. Kent, is a tribute to Dr. Leo Kent's commitment to the community of Tucson, his passion for serving others and bettering the lives of those around him. The Leo Kent Hotel is centered on authenticity, service, providing unique Tucson experiences, creating memories, and celebrating the city's rich history and culture.
