bankESB Donates $75,000 to Sister Caritas Cancer Center Campaign
SPRINGFIELD — bankESB recently donated $75,000 to Transforming Cancer Care – the Capital Campaign for the Sister Caritas Cancer Center. The gift will support the recently completed $15 million dollar expansion of the Cancer Center that added 26,000 square feet of clinical space on two floors.
“The Sister Caritas Cancer Center has a strong reputation for providing high-quality cancer care with a compassionate touch. We are pleased to support this important project for the local community,” said Matthew Sosik, president and CEO of bankESB.
The Sister Caritas Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and the American College of Radiology. The recent expansion of the center brings radiation-oncology and medical-oncology services together under one roof, creates the ability to conduct 30,000 treatments per year, increases patient privacy, and provides added convenience for patients undergoing treatment.
Dr. Scott Wolf, president of Mercy Medical Center and the Sisters of Providence Health System, called bankESB “a longtime supporter of Mercy Medical Center and our efforts to meet the healthcare needs of the local community. We are grateful for this generous contribution that underscores the vital role of the cancer center as one element of our mission to serve as a transforming, healing presence.”
