Pump Foundation Delivers Donation for Infusion Center

Donation to Northridge will benefit the expansion of the new Chemotherapy Infusion Center.

A lead gift to Northridge Hospital Foundation will benefit the expansion of a new chemotherapy infusion center as part of the “Building for the Future – Today” Campaign.

Dana, Leah and David Pump recently presented a check to Brian Hammel, president of the foundation for $600,000 at the foundation’s October board meeting.

The total cost of the expansion is $1.5 million. The Pump gift will help the hospital increase the number of infusion chairs 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.

The $600,000 is the first payment toward the Pump Brothers $2 million pledge to the Carole Pump Women’s Center and the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center. In the past 16 years the Pump Brothers and the Harold and Carole Pump Foundation have raised more than $6.8 million for Northridge Hospital cancer programs.
