Sue J. Sword Heart Center Unveiling

Sue J. Sword

Sue J. Sword, a true gift to the Santa Maria Valley

When it comes to charitable giving throughout the Santa Maria Valley, there is simply no other name better recognized than that of Sue J. Sword.  

Sue has continued Captain Allan and Marian Hancock's local philanthropic leadership in the Santa Maria Valley.  In addition to furthering the Hancocks' tradition of charitable giving, Sue has also built her own legacy of philanthropy and volunteerism - all in order to boldly shape a better world.  

That is why the Marian Regional Medical Center is both excited and honored to name the Heart Center the Sue J. Sword Heart Center and formally unveiled it on November 9, 2017.  Through her special relationship with Marian, the medical center will be able to further advance the programs and services of the Heart Center.

Sue's friendship and legendary support of Marian Regional Medical Center is a special gift which will be forever treasured.
