In celebration of the opening of UCSD’s Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, the university’s Health System leadership, donors, friends and community leaders cut a ceremonial ribbon on Friday in front of the $228 million center next to Thornton Hospital. Visitors also had an opportunity to tour the center, named for Richard and Gaby Sulpizio, who donated $10 million to the project. The center will see its first patients on April 3.
