Banking on Cancer Care

Medical Center

Calling it an “important project for the local community,” 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,” said Matthew Sosik, president and CEO of bankESB. 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.” Pictured, from left, are Sr. Mary Caritas; Thomas Brown, executive vice president, Retail Banking, bankESB; Sosik; and Dr. Philip Glynn, director of Oncology, Sister Caritas Cancer Center.

Star-spangled Summer

Spirit of Springfield

New Jersey native Jeremy Antivo barely had his diploma in hand from American International College (AIC) when he began an internship with Spirit of Springfield. Producing numerous major events throughout the year with a full-time staff of only four people, President Judy Matt believes in giving interns significant responsibility and a lot of opportunity. Matt tapped Antivo to work closely with Social Media Coordinator Bridget Delaney to broaden Spirit of Springfield’s social-media presence in an effort to reach younger audiences. Immediately after graduation, Antivo was thrown right in to the Spirit of Springfield Golf Classic held at Franconia Golf Course followed by the Star Spangled Springfield event at Riverfront Park on July 4. “He’s learned by osmosis what it takes to put on these events,” Matt said. She also asked Antivo to share his social-media expertise and ideas for event marketing with the organization’s board members at a recent meeting. “Jeremy was able to explain social-media strategy exceptionally well. His knowledge of the product and confidence in his presentation gave him the ability to impart information in an understandable manner to our board members.” Antivo added, “I’m learning about how great these opportunities are as well as learning how social media impacts marketing and advertising.”
