Better Together

Cancer Center of Santa Barbara and Sansum Clinic Join Forces

The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara and Sansum Clinic, along with our affiliated physicians, have officially joined forces.  This community-wide partnership will enhance cancer care in our community through better coordination of our doctors, nurses and the entire patient care team.

Both Cancer Center and Sansum Clinic are longtime providers of quality healthcare in our community, and together, over time, we will bring new, specialized services and treatment options to all of our patients.

The new affiliation includes the Cancer Center's Radiation Oncology physicians, Santa Barbara Hematology Oncology medical Group, and Sansum Clinic's Oncology physicians.  The partnership will enhance our ability to deliver the highest quality and most compassionate oncology services.  Our physicians will be able to provide patients with a more comprehensive approach to cancer care – access to new resources, new equipment, and most importantly, close collaboration with an expanded team of caring specialists. 

As a result of this partnership, Cancer Center’s endowment will be renamed Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara and will continue its singular focus of ensuring exemplary cancer care for our community.  

If you have questions about this new partnership, we encourage you to read our Fact Sheet for more information. 

Access to superior cancer resources and technology right here in our community will make it easier for friends and family to provide support for patients during the healing process, and will lessen the financial and personal burdens of traveling long distances for care.  This means that patients can receive the care they need, when they need it, and easily return to the comfort of their own home for rest and recovery.

This new partnership will also bolster our ability to attract and retain world-class physicians, providing people in our community with access to some of the country’s finest physicians.

We are excited about what the future holds and are excited to partner with an organization that shares our values.  For more information, please contact Lindsay Groark, Marketing Manager at (805) 563-5856.
