BMC Annual Fund
Each year, Berkshire Medical Center's Annual Fund and the annual Golf Tournament raise money to support a project that will benefit our patients and our community. Projects range from new technology to the development of new services, from unit renovations to the expansion of existing programs. Contributions from individuals in the community, local businesses and our employees help make these projects possible.
2014 Annual Fund to Support Integrated Medicine & Wellness Care for Cancer Patients
BMC cancer patients have access to evidenced-based Hematology/Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Surgical Oncology treatments and care, provided through a team-based approach. All patients are assessed to meet their needs for nutrition care and guidance, behavioral health counseling, social work services and pain management, supported with care navigation. Our vision includes offering complementary therapies, such as massage therapy, Reiki, Yoga and others that are integrated into patients’ care plans to provide additional healing and comfort. Survivorship programs and education are being developed to ensure continuity of care after active therapy ends. A dedicated space has been created at our new Cancer Center – the Health, Education and Learning Center, or HEAL Center, where any of these key services are provided.
BMC has a history of meeting community need, through the addition of our enhancements to key services, like cancer care, allowing our residents to remain close to home while receiving the best care from our highly skilled physicians and clinical staff. Often, the integrative care and holistic wellness services are not covered by health insurance, and our goal is to help lessen this financial barrier for our patients to access these beneficial programs. With this in mind, gifts for the 2014 Annual Fund will support our Integrated Medicine & Wellness Program.
