Sansum Clinic and the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics

Sansum Clinic is proud to partner with the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics (SBNC) providing them with much needed diagnostic services at no charge to their patients.  This type of partnership is rarely available to safety net providers elsewhere in the country.

SBNC provides affordable medical, dental and health education visits to people in need, regardless of their ability to pay in south Santa Barbara County.  Their 22,000 patients are cared for at four medical clinics and two dental clinics.  

Since 2010 Sansum Clinic has provided 5,554 SBNC patients with 6,782 diagnostic services totaling $2.8 million.  The cardiology diagnostic services include echocardiogram and cardiovascular device monitoring and other diagnostic services such as general and special radiology, MRI scans, CT scans, ultrasounds and mammograms.   

“We are grateful to Sansum Clinic for providing healthcare services to members of our community who do not qualify for services through other funding sources.  Our patients are so thankful for these procedures that would otherwise have resulted in severe financial stress on their families had your program not been available.  We look forward to a continued strong collaboration built on the mutual respect for each other’s contribution to the overall health of our community,” Dr. Charles Fenzi, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics.  

Gifts of support to Sansum Clinic can help cover the cost of diagnostic services we provide free through our collaboration with the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics.  For more information about this program please contact Dru A. Hartley, Director of Philanthropy, at (805) 681-7726 or
