Harold & Carole Pump Foundation $500,000 Gift to Northridge Hospital Foundation for Infusion Center

The Northridge Hospital Foundation has received a lead gift of $500,000 from the Harold & Carole Pump Foundation (H&CPF) for the Chemotherapy Infusion Center.

“This gift is essential as treatment demand and wait times are increasing for chemotherapy patients,” states Brian Hammel, President, Northridge Hospital Foundation. “Plus, patients who need hydration and blood transfusions have to be moved from this location, interrupting care and continuity with physicians and medical staff.”

For the highest quality of care in a comfortable environment for both patients and their support, the number of infusion chairs will increase from 13 to a total of 20, adding one private treatment room for higher acuity patients, an additional restroom and nutrition room, and increased chair space. Plus, physician offices will be redesigned with better patient access.
