    The new St. Anthony Summit Medical Center Specialty Care and Infusion Center is a first of its kind in Summit County.

    The Center will provide advanced, specialized care and infusion therapy (including chemotherapy, intravenous hydration, antibiotic treatment infusions, blood transfusions, and pain management) in a comfortable and convenient environment.

    The Center will have the space and the necessary technology to integrate holistic care with the patient’s family, primary care doctor, pharmacist, nurse navigators, oncologists, and chaplain in a way that is not usually done in other infusion centers.

    Currently, the hundreds of patients that are diagnosed with cancer each year in Summit and neighboring counties must access infusion care by traveling to Vail or Denver, a route that is treacherous in the winter and often requires someone to drive them as patients are often too sick to drive themselves. Additionally, infusion therapies can take up to 8 hours making for an exhausting, costly, and time-consuming experience. An infusion center attached to the hospital will allow patients in Summit County and neighboring counties to remain close to home and age in place.

    The space will be focused on providing a healing environment with warm colors, wood, and a stone fireplace while looking out over Lake Dillon and Buffalo Mountain. Patients will have a nourishment area for snacks and beverages for both themselves and their visitors and they will receive blanket warmers while they sit in comfortable recliners during treatment.

    The space will also include the build out of 10 exam rooms that can be used to host a mix of specialists to provide specialty care that otherwise has not been available to Summit county residents in the past. These specialists may include eye specialists, aesthetic plastics, and allergists to name a few.

    Please consider making a gift to St. Anthony Summit Medical Center to make this important project a reality.

    This list, by no means, addresses all of the health care needs at the hospital or in the community. The Summit Medical Center Health Foundation is dedicated to raising and allocating philanthropic funds, primarily for the hospital's programs and services that benefit the underserved, the elderly and the community. Our focus is on areas and issues that enhance the hospital's mission but do not fall within the normal parameters of the hospital or its budget. Contributions to support these programs are gladly accepted at any time.
