Expansion of Care
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death in Ashtabula County. Until recently, there were limited choices for cancer services in the Ashtabula area, requiring many who were diagnosed to travel out of county for treatment.
To address these issues and ensure patients receive advanced care in a comfortable, healing environment, UH has embarked on an ambitious campaign to establish UH Seidman Cancer Centers at both UH Geneva and UH Conneaut medical centers. Improvement of facilities with tranquil aesthetics, natural light and inspirational artwork will complete the full spectrum of UH Seidman Cancer Center services.
The total cost to expand cancer services for our rural patients at both facilities is $800,000. At this time, approximately half of the philanthropic support needed has been raised for UH Conneaut Medical Center. Make a gift today to support this expansion of care to our UH Conneaut community and Ashtabula county residents.
Walk for the Cure
Every year we are inspired by the number of sponsors, walkers, and families that join us at for our annual “Walk for the Cure." Due to the immunocompromised nature of the community members who attend this event, it puts them in the high risk category and the timing aligning with a projected peak in Delta spread, it has been decided that it is in the best interest of the community to not go ahead with our event scheduled for September 19 this year.
While we are very disappointed that we won’t be able to gather in person for the event, we are so very thankful for your tremendous support. Despite this, the need to provide this very important service to our underinsured and uninsured members of our community and their families is as strong as ever. With your support we will continue to make a difference in the health of our patients, their families and the entire community.
