The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara joined with Sansum Clinic in 2012 to create the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic, to realize a vision for enhancing oncology care on the Central Coast. Since 1949, through the charitable giving of families and foundations, the Cancer Center has been at the forefront of comprehensive outpatient cancer care in our region. The advanced technology at the Cancer Center allows patients to be treated in a comfortable and familiar environment here in our community. The Cancer Center retains highly trained and devoted medical personnel, acquires the latest technology and treatment protocols, integrates oncology supportive programs and commits to provide every opportunity for successful treatment, recovery and a healthy return to the activities that enrich life. We know that a cancer diagnosis and treatment can bring a myriad of challenges and changes to patients, their families and friends. With this in mind, the Cancer Center sensitively integrates outpatient treatment and support disciplines including:
Partnering with Sansum Clinic’s robust Primary Care department and more than 30 specialties enables greater coordination of our doctors, nurses, and the entire patient care team. The Cancer Center’s oncologists and medical staff are proud to work with Sansum Clinic’s 180 physicians who provide medical care to more than 150,000 unique patients annually. Together we are committed to advancing clinical science while providing an integrated approach to oncology care. Our commitment to provide cancer care for individuals in our community, regardless of their ability to pay, has been a fundamental principle since our founding. At the same time, we have been, and continue to be, committed to the advancement of clinical science in the community. In an era where decisions about investments in new technology are often based on potential profits and losses, the Cancer Center maintains its dedication to excellent oncology care that is focused on the patient and the family.
