Did anyone else receive the 11/2 letter from Sansum Clinic’s CEO titled “A Special Request”?
Earlier this year Sansum announced it was bought out by the NorCal hospital giant Sutter Health, touting it will bring in more funding and greater access for care.
Now before the holidays I’m getting emails asking me to donate to Sansum. I surely have my opinions on this but I’m curious what other readers think.
Here are some highlighted quotes from the email:
“The joining of Sansum Clinic and Sutter Health will bring necessary resources to our community so we can continue to provide a full array of healthcare services for generations to come.”
“With Sutter we will be able to make significant investments in our facilities and capital improvement projects that we have not had the resources to undertake alone.”
“These changes won’t happen overnight. Even when we are fully integrated with Sutter we will remain a nonprofit organization and we will continue to rely on the generous support from our grateful patients.”
“Your gift of support will ensure that we are on the strongest financial footing possible and that we are able to continue serving our community with the highest quality healthcare available now and in the future. Won’t you please consider making a year-end gift to Sansum Clinic? All gifts of support donated in this community remain in this community.”
