How You Can Help

Dear Friends,   

As the year comes to a close, we reflect on all that we have to be grateful for at Sansum Clinic.  We are grateful for our outstanding physicians and staff who ensure our patients are well cared for and make it their mission to provide an excellent healthcare experience, recognizing our first priority is the patients we serve.

We are grateful for the continued support of our donor community…who serve an incredibly important role in helping us provide the high quality healthcare our community needs and deserves and has come to expect from us.  

Here are just a few things we’ve done this year to further enhance the patient experience: 

  • Expanded Urgent Care Hours from 8am to 7pm every day of the week

  • Opened two new departments – Pain Management and the Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning Program 

  • Established the Women’s Health Initiative to bring greater focus to the special healthcare needs of women  

  • Introduced WELL, the newest communication tool that connects patients to Sansum Clinic via two way text message

September was the second anniversary of the opening of the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center at Sansum Clinic. The Cancer Center was fully funded through philanthropic support from major philanthropists like Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree and Virgil Elings, and many generous community donors.  Our goal is to provide every patient and their family with the best possible care, close to home.  

Medical excellence is a never-ending journey.  We continue to focus our efforts on keeping pace with the latest medical advancements and further enhancing our patients’ healthcare experience with new programs and services.    

Many people don’t realize that as a nonprofit organization, Sansum Clinic re-invests earnings back into the community by continually improving care, equipment and services for our patients. In an era of diminishing insurance reimbursements, the Clinic’s commitment to providing high quality care relies increasingly on the generosity of our donors.  

Your philanthropic support will make a critical difference in helping Sansum Clinic to achieve that goal!  

Won’t you join us today with a year-end gift to support our efforts?  

Our list of funding priorities includes the Lovelace Fund for Medical Excellence which encompasses the Physician Housing and Facility Improvement Programs to assist us in the recruitment and retention of outstanding physicians; our new Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning Program for patients with critical illness, and state-of-the-art Equipment and Technology, with a third mammogram machine at the top of the list.  

We are truly grateful for every gift we receive, no matter the amount. Your support contributes to the good health of everyone in our community.  You are an important partner in our current and future success. Working together we can continue to better serve you, our patients and the community.  

We take pride in the fact that we have been caring for our community for nearly 100 years. Exploring new and better ways of delivering expert, compassionate medical care is central to our mission of serving the needs of our community. We consider it our privilege to serve you and we hope you will invest in Sansum Clinic with a gift today.      

Please accept our deepest gratitude for your consideration and warmest wishes for a healthy and joyous holiday season!
