The Italian-American Charity Golf Association is proud to announce a new 3 year $150,000 commitment toward an oncology treatment room at UPMC Chautauqua.
The room will consist of a treatment bed/recliner, infusion center, visitors chair and TV. This room will provide for a private area for those diagnosed with cancer requiring medical oncology to be infused with chemotherapy agents. Safety is a primary concern, so constant observation will be provided for the patient from a team of licensed oncology staff. This process can take up to as many as 8 hours to complete; therefore, the comfort of this room for a patients emotional and physical state is critical.
