MedStar Health In Olney announced a $250,000 philanthropic gift from long-time community partner Sandy Spring Bank to expand cancer care services at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center. The gift will be used toward the development of the Oncology Pavilion at MedStar Montgomery to house oncology services such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, and other treatment and support services.
Sandy Spring Bank’s support of MedStar Montgomery dates back to the founding of the then Montgomery General Hospital in the early 1900s and has continued for more than 100 years through various community, philanthropic, and volunteer support initiatives.
“We are deeply grateful to Sandy Spring Bank for this life-changing philanthropic investment to support our patients and community, and for the wonderful partnership we have enjoyed with the bank throughout the years. With this gift, we will expand access to our world-class team of experienced oncologists, surgeons, researchers, specialists, and support cancer care services,” said Thomas J. Senker, FACHE, President of MedStar Montgomery Medical Center.
Upon completion, the Oncology Pavilion will optimize coordination of patient care, enhance effective communication between providers, decrease length of time between medically necessary “day-of” services, increase patient care capacity, improve wayfinding, and more.
“Sandy Spring Bank has supported MedStar Montgomery Medical Center since the hospital was founded over 100 years ago. Through our philanthropic gift toward the Oncology Pavilion, we will help the hospital expand the Cancer Center, improve the patient experience, and achieve another milestone in its storied history,” said Daniel J. Schrider, President and CEO of Sandy Spring Bank. “Our organizations have been pillars in the community for over a century, and this gift is our way of showing our appreciation for our original, hometown hospital.”
