Sanford Health Announces Sanford Children's Clinic in California and Partnership with Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego

Philanthropic Donation from Martin and Pamela Wygod Supports Pediatric Care in Oceanside Area

Oceanside, CA (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- Children in northwest San Diego County will soon have their own Castle of Care™. Sanford Health announced today plans to open a Sanford Children’s Clinic in Oceanside, CA. In partnership with Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, the primary care pediatric clinic is made possible by a $2.5 million donation from Pamela and Martin Wygod and the Rose Foundation.

A portion of the philanthropic donation from the Wygod family will be used to purchase a 28,500-square-foot building at Ocean Terrace Professional Center, 3605 Vista Way in Oceanside, CA. Sanford Children’s and Rady Children’s will share space in the building. Sanford Children’s will open a general pediatric clinic using 6,000 square feet of the building. Rady Children’s will consolidate four nearby specialty clinics into the facility, providing primary care, psychiatry, developmental services, various specialty clinics and the Chadwick Center, all under one roof. Additionally, an urgent care, after-hours clinic for children will be available within the building. The entire facility is expected to open spring 2011.

“Rady Children’s and Sanford Children’s both provide outstanding care and are collaborating to bring additional pediatric care to this area for children and families in this community, “ said Dave Link, Senior Executive Vice President, Sanford Health-MeritCare. “We are very grateful to the Wygod’s and the Rose Foundation for their support of children’s healthcare. There are more than 110,000 children within a ten mile radius of this clinic, and this facility will provide them a convenient and comprehensive location for their care.”

“Rady Children’s collaboration with Sanford Health represents a great partnership for excellence in care serving the north coastal community,” said Kathleen Sellick, President and CEO of Rady Children’s Hospital. “The variety of services offered – developmental evaluations, occupational therapy, urgent care, pediatric subspecialty physician services, the expertise of the Chadwick Center for Children and Families -- will provide parents with an expanded and vitally needed range of care.”

"Marty and I are honored to share the vision of bringing exceptional pediatric care to the Oceanside area. Sanford Health and Rady Children's Hospital are to be congratulated on their collaboration to make this vision a reality,” said Pamela Wygod, President of the Rose Foundation.

The Sanford Children’s Clinic in Oceanside is the third Sanford Children’s World Clinic announced by Sanford Health as part of the initiatives outlined after a $400 million donation from Denny Sanford in 2007. Sanford Children’s Clinic in Duncan, OK opened August 2009. Sanford Children’s Clinic in Belize City, Belize will break ground May 2010 and open in 2011.
