Changing Lives: Carol Vassiliadis Names Hospital with $8.5 Million to Jacobs Medical Center

October 16, 2014 – 6:00 am

Carol Vassiliadis did not attend college at the University of California, San Diego. Her two children did not go to UC San Diego. Her late husband, who battled cancer over a decade ago, was not treated at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. Yet, Vassiliadis has dedicated innumerable hours and considerable resources to the campus, including gifts totaling $8.5 million to the future UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center. In honor of her support, the new facility—to be opened in 2016—will be home to the “A. Vassiliadis Family Hospital for Advanced Surgery.” A portion of Vassiliadis’ support was also matched by an anonymous donor as part of a Jacobs Medical Center Challenge grant, for a total of $12 million in gifts.
