Local community and health care leaders including director Barbara J. Menard gathered in Hillcrest on Sept. 19, 2012 to celebrate the naming and opening of the Woltman Family Infusion Center, an outpatient service of Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego that specializes in cancer care and treatment of other health conditions. The $1.3 million center is made possible by philanthropic support from the community, including a leadership gift from the Woltman family, who have had a long legacy of advancing Scripps’ efforts to provide patients with the latest medical advancements and individualized care. Located in the Mercy Clinic building at 4020 Fifth Ave., the 3,100-square-foot center shares the fourth floor with Scripps Cancer Center. The new center offers 12 patient treatment stations, each with a comfortable recliner chair, seat warmer, Wi-Fi access and private television.
The center also has an on-site pharmacy dedicated solely to the specialized needs of infusion clinic patients, which will help reduce treatment times.
