Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital is currently working to expand its infusion center with a larger treatment space to help accommodate the 9,500 infusions that are given to patients battling cancer, Crohn's Disease, rheumatoid arthritis, anemia, multiple sclerosis and other conditions and diseases. The new space will feature updated equipment in a calming and comfortable environment complete with natural lighting and a view of the surrounding foothills. It will also include a centralized nursing station for individual attention and timely service. Common spaces are designed to provide a place for patients to connect with each other, including a nourishment area where patients can help themselves to healthy snacks and beverages.
Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation is currently collaborating with the 10th Annual John Kane Penny Pitch to benefit the infusion center project. The event will be held at 11:30 a.m., June 24 at Kane's Bar and Grill Restaurant in downtown Grass Valley. Sponsorships, raffle prizes donations and teams of up to six are still needed.
