About Sansum Clinic
2021 marks the 100th Anniversary of Sansum Clinic, the oldest and largest non-profit, outpatient healthcare provider on the California Central Coast.
Sansum Clinic has maintained that innovative approach and has continually evolved the level of care available in the community, working to stay out in front of the community's needs - advancing care in addition to responding to the challenges of the day. The organization's myriad healthcare advancements include the first renal dialysis machine and the first kidney transplant surgery in Santa Barbara. Sansum Clinic physicians performed the first carotid and laparoscopic surgeries and brought the first digital mammography services to Santa Barbara. The Clinic expanded care to residents with one of the first outpatient Urgent Care facilities, providing after-hours services that were open to the community.
