Goshen Health will Monday celebrate the grand opening of its new infusion center at the Goshen Center for Cancer Care. Chief Executive Officer Randy Christophel says the nearly $5 million facility will increase the health system’s ability to deliver a higher volume of personalized cancer therapies.
The facility, known as the Alice A. and Rex Martin Infusion Center, features large, private infusion bays with added space for family and friends to support patients during procedures. It also includes an in-house phlebotomy room and streamlined nursing office space the health system says creates easier accessibility to patients during infusion treatments.
"Alice A. Martin was a grateful patient of our cancer center and a customer service expert at their organization," said Susan Franger, vice president of cancer services at Goshen Health. "She was passionate about the quality of care she received, but felt moved to expand the service experience for other patients with a gift to advance treatment space available here at Goshen."
Goshen Health says more jobs will be added at the Center for Cancer Care as patient volumes continue to grow, though no specific numbers were available.
