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 access to 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.
  • Access: Endow a Cancer Care Compassion Fund
    Cancer care is expensive. It involves costly tests and treatments, often for months or even years. We are creating a cancer care compassion endowment to help lessen the burden on families struggling and allow them to focus on the health of their loved one battling this terrible disease.
    Your support of this campaign will provide the resources our patients need for their cancer care.
  • 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 enter in the current location of the PeaceHealth Southwest Cancer Center. By expanding and remodeling the current space we will be able to deliver cancer care to patients in one facility, making coordination of services much easier. And, this move will allow us to 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.
