Dear Friends, 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal donors who helped make it possible for us to take such significant steps forward in providing quality healthcare close to home.

We take pride in the fact we have been delivering excellence in medical care for more than 95 years and that Sansum Clinic is the healthcare provider of choice for nearly 130,000 patients in Santa Barbara. 

We remain committed to your good health.

Support from our donor community has helped us to deliver the following critical initiatives: 

Raising cancer care in Santa Barbara to a new level of excellence!  We are progressing with construction of our state-of-the-art regional cancer center.  Located in the heart of our community, this new treatment center, scheduled to open in Fall 2017, will save and enhance the lives of those who are faced with a cancer diagnosis.

Expanding Primary Care capacity and completing significant physical improvements at our multi-specialty clinic on Pesetas Lane.  We are nearly finished remodeling our facilities to improve patient access to critical services and to ensure we are treating patients in a comfortable, welcoming and efficient environment.

Expanding Urgent Care capacity in the newly-updated Pesetas Lane clinic.  We have doubled our capacity to care for patients in need of urgent medical care, keeping them out of the more costly hospital emergency room, and increasing our ability to provide patients with same-day appointments. 

Remodeling our Pediatrics Department on Hitchcock Way for our littlest patients.  New furniture, fixtures and carpet along with a fresh coat of paint and beautiful photography will make the world of difference to children and their families.  We also welcomed a new physician to join our existing staff. 

Enhancing the level of treatment provided to patients throughout Sansum Clinic by offering the latest equipment and technology…from our new 3-D mammogram machines, whole breast ultrasounds, and handheld ultrasounds that need to be replaced or updated regularly. 

Our work is never done…we continue to focus efforts on our programs and services and enhancing our patient’s experience at Sansum Clinic! 

In our ongoing effort to keep pace with the latest technology, we continue to invest in the newest equipment, such as a recent CT Scanner, wish is faster and provides more detail than its predecessors. 

But our need for new equipment is almost endless.

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

We are challenged to continue providing exceptional care in an era of declining insurance payment.  Sansum Clinic is a nonprofit organization that relies on philanthropic support that can make the critical difference between upgrading technology and facilities or cutting back important programs and services.

Working together, we can continue to make a difference in the quality of healthcare provided to all our patients and the community.   

Thank you for your consideration.
