Sammons Support for Baylor Health Care System Foundation Tops $20 Million
Date:9/24/2009

DALLAS, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Baylor Health Care System Foundation announced gifts exceeding $20 million for what will be North Texas' largest outpatient cancer center and first dedicated hospital focusing on cancer patients. This donation is made possible through the generosity of the men and women of Sammons Enterprises, Inc. and the estate of founder Charles A. Sammons, who quietly provided significant philanthropic support to Baylor University Medical Center for more than 50 years. These extraordinary contributions will benefit the new cancer complex at the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas which was previously announced in September 2008.

National renowned cancer care destination

"The development of these facilities will ensure that all patients in North Texas have convenient access to the advanced screening, diagnosis, and treatment they need to overcome cancer," said Joel T. Allison, president and chief executive officer of Baylor Health Care System. "This gift will help us continue to provide advanced cancer treatments and conduct clinical research to reach our goal to be a destination for cancer care. The Baylor Health Care System is most grateful for the generosity of the Sammons family and companies."

The outpatient cancer center and inpatient cancer hospital are key components of a $350 million investment. The inpatient cancer hospital will feature 120 beds and the new outpatient cancer center will provide a full range of cancer-related services, including physician offices, radiation, chemotherapy, and pain management in a new ten-story, 450,000 square foot building.
