On August 19, Kurt N. Ransohoff, MD, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Sansum Clinic and Rick Scott, President of the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara, announced the public phase of the “Campaign for Our New Cancer Center” – an effort to raise $38 million for the construction of a new, state-of-the-art home for the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, which will ensure exceptional cancer care is available for patients in our community now and in the future.
The silent phase of the campaign began in June 2015 and quickly surpassed expectations with more than $33 million raised as of August 19, 2016.
Coinciding with the opening of the new building in fall of 2017, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara will officially be re-named Ridley-Tree Cancer Center in honor of Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree’s leadership role and her generous support of the new Cancer Center totaling more than $10.73 million.
The new Cancer Center building is set to open in Fall 2017.
