UCI Health names cancer clinic floor after donors

Orange, Calif.-based UCI Health is naming a cancer clinic floor in the upcoming Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and Ambulatory Care after Ralph and Sue Stern because of their recent donation.

In total, the couple have donated more than $12.5 million to the organization over the last 13 years, according to a Nov. 10 news release.

The cancer clinic floor will have 36 private exam rooms. The cancer center is expected to be completed in 2025.

"Ralph and Sue Stern bring vision and remarkable generosity to the UCI Health fight against cancer, producing new cures and extending the opportunity for more patients to receive the team-based, personalized cancer care that is only possible at an academic health center," said Steve Goldstein, MD, PhD, UCI vice chancellor for health affairs. "Under the leadership of Dr. Rick Van Etten, the UCI Chao Cancer Family Comprehensive Center is at the forefront of innovation in cancer care through its use of advanced AI/machine learning, genomics and therapeutics, empowered by the compassionate minds of world-class cancer clinician-scientists."
