RIDLEY-TREE CANCER CENTER OPENS
Ridley-Tree Cancer Center Opened last month to the delight of everyone in Santa Barbara. Imagine if you took some of the finest cancer doctors in the nation, gave them a highly skilled and compassionate staff, two Elekta Versa HD linear accelerators, the most genetic councelors in the region, two national clinical research networks, and housed it all in a new state-of-the-art Cancer Center. Now open your eyes. It's here.
The Ridley-Tree Name? The reason for the name is Lady Ridley-Tree who has been a tireless supporter of many causes important to Santa Barbara. A woman who has put her resources to work to ensure every life can be enriched and lived well.
