PENSACOLA, FLA. (Sept. 28, 2023) – The Sandy Sansing family made a generous $200,000 contribution to the Baptist Health Care Foundation to support the new Baptist Hospital campus, which opened on Sept. 23. The Foundation will name the outpatient lab on the first floor of the Bear Family Foundation Health Center in the family’s honor.

“My family and I are so very blessed to contribute to the new Baptist Hospital because we believe so strongly in the Mission and wonderful services that Baptist Hospital has provided our community for so many years,” said Sandy Sansing, owner of Sandy Sansing Dealerships. “I had the privilege of serving on the Baptist Hospital board of directors for over 20 years, serving as chairman for over 10 of those years. I know first-hand the dedication, commitment and patient focus of this wonderful team of health care professionals. The new state-of-the-art facility will greatly enhance the services offered to our patients.”

The Sansing family has been passionate about giving back to help others in the Pensacola community for many years through health care projects, educational scholarships and programs that support children in need.

“We are extremely humbled by the generosity of the Sansing family, and we are grateful for Sandy’s longtime service to Baptist,” said Mark Faulkner, president & CEO, Baptist Health Care. “Their gift is just another example of the lasting impact he and the family have on so many organizations in our community.”
