PinnacleHealth launches donor campaign in advance of opening of new cancer center

HAMPDEN TOWNSHIP -- PinnacleHealth has launched a donor campaign for its new cancer center.

Located in Hampden Township, the Ortenzio Cancer Center at PinnacleHealth will provide advanced cancer care and support for patients and their families, all in the same location.

By 2017, according to PinnacleHealth over 35 percent of the people on the West Shore will be over age 55 and cancer cases in the area are expected to increase by almost 30,000.

”Our experience has shown that one of the greatest barriers to patient care and comfort is distance,” said Brij M. Sood, MD, radiation oncologist and director of radiation oncology at PinnacleHealth. “Transportation costs, family commitments, work and scheduling become complicated and exhausting when patients receive treatment far from home.”

“It so critical to have cancer treatment close to home. Not just treatment, but cutting edge, advanced technology offered in a comfortable and restorative and healing setting. The Ortenzio Cancer Center will bring the feeling that you are not alone in this journey, and that our patients have the treatment and resources they need in order to get better – that hope for a healthier future is possible. I hope others join me in supporting the Ortenzio Cancer Center,” shared Larry Sollenberger, MD, campaign chair for the Ortenzio Cancer Center at PinnacleHealth.

PinnacleHealth expects the Ortenzio Cancer Center at PinnacleHealth to be completed in August 2014, just after the new West Shore Hospital opens.
