Giving Strength:
The Cancer Campaign for PeaceHealth Southwest

 
Cancer is tied with heart disease as the number one cause of death in Clark County. Every day our friends, family members and neighbors are being treated for some form of cancer and many of those individuals rely on PeaceHealth Southwest to provide their treatment.


PeaceHealth Southwest is a regional center for cancer care known for its compassionate caregivers, its rare and highly-utilized cancer treatment technologies (like the Cyberknife) and its skilled physicians creating clinical plans rooted in deep experience and research. With your help, we have the opportunity to strengthen our cancer care for all who need it in our community.

Here are the three projects of our new $10 million fundraising campaign:

  • Comfort: Renovate the Inpatient Cancer Care Wing
    An enhanced and restorative healing space for patient recovery is essential. A full renovation of our inpatient cancer wing will create the private spaces our inpatients and their families need during their stay.
    Your support of this campaign gives strength and healing to the hundreds of cancer patients we care for every year at the hospital.
     
  • Compassion: Endow a Cancer Care Compassion Fund
    Cancer care is costly and lengthy. We are creating an endowment to provide support for patient needs that they otherwise could not afford. Support may be used for a variety of cancer patient needs such as transportation, medication, clothing and food.
    Your support of this campaign will contribute to positive outcomes and recovery for our cancer patients.
     
  • Healing : Create a comprehensive Cancer Center
    A plan to relocate the Elaine and Don Heimbigner Oncology Infusion Center is being developed. The goal is to co-locate physicians and the infusion center in the current location of the PeaceHealth Southwest Cancer Center. This expanded and remodeled space will deliver cancer care to patients in one facility, making coordination of services much easier. This move will also expand the capacity for infusion care and better meet the needs of our community.

    Your support of this campaign will provide access to critically needed treatments for cancer patients – close to home, close to their care team and in the most healing and comfortable environment possible.

Your donation today gives strength to cancer patients, thank you.
