New oncology garden and Vital Monitors at OMC comes to life through gifts of generosity


In June of 2021, volunteers and staff gathered to plant colorful perennials and grasses in a newly landscaped oncology garden located outside the cancer center at Osceola Medical Center. Volunteers and staff, led by Master Gardener Kris Bahr, spent 3 hours planting the garden. Chris lost her husband to cancer recently. Gardening helps her heal and appreciate the beauty in nature. Oncology Manager, Sanci Harshman, shared “This has been a vision of ours for a couple years and our patients deserve it. It is a joy to see this beautiful garden thriving with nature and our patients benefitting from it.”


J&S General Contracting designed and developed the garden. Other donors provided additional funding for the purchase of plants and decorative pieces which will provide a more therapeutic experience for patients during their treatments.


 

In December of 2021, the foundation also supported the purchase of two vital monitors for oncology patients. It is essential to the care of oncology patients that vital signs are properly monitored during treatments.
