Three cheers to the Northfield Bank Foundation for its generous grant of $18,000 to Lutheran Medical Center’s Infusion Suite. This is one of the largest gifts that the hospital has received.
The department has been in operation since 1993 and treats approximately 300 patients per month. Patients receive chemotherapy, antibiotics, blood products, and other types of infusions in this relaxing, patient-friendly suite that offers a common room for those who like to chat, and private rooms for patients who want to get away from it all.
The gelt will be used wisely to keep the infusion flowing.
