Because of Your Generosity
Cancer & Infusion
Because of you, cancer and infusion patients can now receive critical treatments close to home. More than 500 donors came together to exceed the $2 million fundraising goal, giving our community of patients access to the very best in medicine, comfort and compassionate care without leaving Grand Rapids.
Our donors made it possible! Now, women in our area can take advantage of 3-D mammography that can result in earlier detection of abnormalities including breast cancer.
Our incredible donors raised $48,000 to purchase new Tele-ICU equipment, including a top-of-the-line, two-way audio and video system for Grand Itasca. The Tele-ICU makes it possible for patients to receive great care from their hometown providers at Grand Itasca, with an extra layer of 24-hour monitoring. An intensive care team at M Health Fairview’s Southdale Hospital in Edina, MN can collaborate with the local team at Grand Itasca to review vital signs, lab data, imaging, and more. This reduces the likelihood of a Grand Itasca patient needing to transfer to a larger hospital that is further from home and family.
Thanks to you, Grand Itasca is a brighter place for kids to come for immediate care or long-term treatments. Learn more about Caring Fore Kids, our annual fundraising event that has raised over $325,000 for pediatric projects, programs and equipment.
