Dear Friends,

Next year, Sansum Clinic will mark its 100th anniversary of providing excellence in healthcare to our community. Our founders could not have imagined how we have grown or how we have adapted to the challenges of the last several months to continue to deliver on our mission during this unprecedented time.

We have pulled together as a community with a collective resilience and strength – as we have in the past with fires, a debris flow, economic crises, and now, a global pandemic. Despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented during this past year, the holidays remind us to pause and be grateful.

We are grateful for and proud of our physicians, nurses, medical technicians and other professional staff members who work tirelessly to deliver the best care possible, despite the challenges we all face and will continue to face in the coming months.

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 has come to expect from us.

We are grateful to be able to keep our doors open for our patients because we know that some doors haven’t been able to stay open and many businesses are still struggling.

While we don’t have a crystal ball to forecast the future, we know that keeping our patients healthy and safe during COVID-19 will continue to be the main focus of our attention.

Your philanthropic support will help
meet the healthcare needs of our community.
Won’t you join us today with a year-end gift to support our efforts?

Sansum Clinic delivers a major share of the front-line care for COVID patients. We were first to set up a testing program specifically for large-scale testing of ambulatory patients.
Our doctors in the Clinic and in the hospital provide care to critically ill COVID patients, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while continuing to serve the medical needs of all our patients whose conditions still require the care for which we are so well known. And, we are once again providing a significant share of annual flu vaccinations for our community, although this year with the added challenge of social distancing.

The support we have received from our donors as well as local businesses has been gratifying. They believe in the critical role we play in providing healthcare to our community and value the work we do for our patients. Their interest in supporting our work at this critical time warranted us establishing the Pandemic Relief Fund.

This fund will help us purchase additional personal protective equipment and testing supplies so that we may continue performing essential testing. We will use some of those funds to deal with the unique challenges the pandemic has caused in terms of our regular operations – for instance the increased costs associated with providing large scale vaccinations – for the flu first, and hopefully for the novel coronavirus one day soon.

As a nonprofit organization, your philanthropic support will make the critical difference in helping to continue providing the same high-quality healthcare we have provided for nearly 100 years, regardless of any challenges we may encounter.

Thank you for your support of Sansum Clinic and the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center. To you and yours…happy holidays and remember that we are here for you. Please know that we are all smiling under our masks.
