Chemotherapy Center Open for Spring at Charlevoix Area Hospital

 A new Chemotherapy center in Northern Michigan, with a healing view.  

Construction at the Sarah M. Foster Chemotherapy and Infusion Center wrapped up in January.

Now, the new center at the Charlevoix Area Hospital in Charlevoix County is open.

It has six chairs with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan — providing a healing space for treatments.

The hospital says it is a relief for many that had to drive long distances to get the treatments they need.

“We serve a lot of people right in our community otherwise they would have had to travel to Traverse City, Petoskey and in the midst of chemotherapy travel can be not very pleasant so they’re allowed to come right here close to home,” said Bernadette Cole, Chief Nursing Officer.

The center is named after Doctor Sara Foster who lost the battle to cancer but helped design this center.
