Leadership gift from Sulpizio Family for new state-of-the-art cardiovascular center at UCSD

The University of California, San Diego today announced a leadership gift of $10 million from Richard and Maria (Gaby) Sulpizio, to support the construction of a new state-of-the-art facility that will centralize UCSD's cutting-edge patient care and clinical research activities in heart and vascular disease and stroke management.

Rich Sulpizio is chairman of the UCSD Cardiovascular Center Board of Directors. This long-term gift contributes to a multi-year fund-raising initiative for the UCSD Cardiovascular Center. To date, $30 million has been raised which has allowed the campus to begin formal planning for the construction of the new facility which will be located near the John M. and Sally B. Thornton Hospital on the university's east campus in La Jolla.

"We are excited about UCSD's efforts in the area of cardiovascular research and are pleased to help support such outstanding physicians and researchers, many of whom are among the best in the nation," said Rich Sulpizio.

"Our family knows, personally, how devastating cardiovascular diseases can be, which is why we have been so active with UCSD's Cardiovascular Center for a number of years," said Gaby Sulpizio. "Also UCSD's program focuses on cardiovascular issues for women, the number one cause of death among females. We are confident that the health and future of many generations to come will benefit from the health care work at UCSD."

In recognition of their leadership, UCSD will name the Cardiovascular Center and the new facility the Sulpizio Family Cardiovascular Center.

"We are extremely grateful to the Sulpizio family for this gift, and for their active leadership with the Cardiovascular Center Board of Directors," said Chancellor Marye Anne Fox. "This project promises the community advanced cardiac care with a full range of treatment options and expanded access to clinical trials."

"Heart disease and stroke are leading killers in the United States," said E
