Give Greater Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

Because you personally understand the need for holistic patient care, we invite you to join our campaign "Give Greater Health" from April 5 - May 25 and support the Cancer Patient Housing Fund.

As this region's only academic medical center, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center offers world class care, including renowned oncology services at Penn State Cancer Institute. With a mission to see and care for the whole person, the Cancer Institute is dedicated to providing the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and educational support needed to achieve what matters most to the patient. 

Each year, our cancer care teams in Hershey see approximately 2,000 patients with new diagnoses, admit 18,000 inpatients and conduct 30,000 clinic visits and 35,000 infusion visits.

However, many patients who travel from other cities or need multi-day treatments, like those receiving bone marrow transplants, currently stay over in the hospital - escalating patient costs and filling needed beds. Annually, we'll need to raise between $100,000 and $300,000 to assist patients with housing accommodations at our lodging partner, Country Meadows of Hershey.
