“Thanks to you, the future of health care is taking shape right here at UC San Diego and will benefit generations to come.” - Chancellor Khosla
UC San Diego’s Jacobs Medical Center is poised to change the future of healthcare in San Diego and beyond. A special reception was held at the Center’s construction site on Friday to thank the more than 1,000 supporters who’ve contributed to the facility. In all, donors have given more than $131 million to the project, including gifts that matched a $25 million Challenge donation. Last week, it was revealed that Joan and Irwin Jacobs were the extraordinary individuals who provided the previously anonymous Challenge gift, in addition to the $75 million lead gift for the facility in 2010. Generous gifts from Carol Vassiliadis and Pauline Foster led to the namings of the A. Vassiliadis Family Hospital for Advanced Surgery and the Pauline and Stanley Foster Hospital for Cancer Care at the Jacobs Medical Center.
