How You Can Help

Dear Friends, 

National Doctors’ Day is March 31.  It an important occasion to honor those who have dedicated their lives to your good health. They are committed to helping you lead the longest, healthiest life possible.  I hope you will join us in acknowledging the important work of the outstanding medical team at Sansum Clinic and the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center.   

We know this is an unsettling time.  Throughout our facilities we are adapting to the constant changes we are facing in order to provide the most appropriate care for our patients.  We are working with the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department to ensure we have a structure in place to effectively reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  We ask that you join us in taking measures to prevent the spread of this virus.  For up-to-date information, please visit sansumclinic.org.

Our physicians and staff make it their mission to provide an excellent healthcare experience, recognizing their first priority is the patients they serve.  Our doctors and healthcare providers will appreciate knowing that their care inspired you to make a gift in their honor. We are truly grateful for every gift we receive, no matter the amount.

As a nonprofit organization dedicated to healthcare in an era of diminishing insurance reimbursements, our commitment to providing exceptional care relies, increasingly, on the generosity of our donors.  Philanthropic support makes a critical difference in our ability to achieve that goal.  

I hope you will consider making a meaningful gift of support to honor those who continue to provide the most advanced care that you and all our patients have come to expect from us.  

Sansum’s commitment to patient care, research and new technology means that patients benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques in virtually every area of medicine – from prevention and detection to treatment and research. We deliver all the expertise of a large-city healthcare system, and combine it with small town compassion and a deep sense of commitment that are unique to our doctors and medical staff.

You may include a personal note of gratitude to your favorite doctor or other healthcare provider at Sansum Clinic or the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center. 

Thank you for taking a moment to celebrate our team of medical professionals who work tirelessly to deliver the best possible care for you and your loved ones.

Stay safe.  We’re here for you.
