From Antioch to Castro Valley, Sutter Health Brings Cancer Care to the Community

infusion-159It’s hard to fit everything you need to do into “normal” business hours. That’s why Sutter Health has introduced extended hours for infusion services and screening mammographies.

The infusion center at Alta Bates Summit’s Comprehensive Cancer Center has new patient areas and expanded hours thanks to Better Health East Bay (BHEB), a philanthropic foundation.

BHEB donated $2.4 million to the project, which redesigned the natural-light-filled facility at the Comprehensive Cancer Center in Berkeley. Infusions are available 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 8 a.m.-noon on holidays.

“By helping solve patient problems faster and more cost effectively, BHEB makes it possible to prevent and treat illness, and save lives, neighborhood by neighborhood,” says BHEB’s CEO Jim Hickman.

To serve patients in central and southern Alameda County, the infusion center at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to both cancer and non-cancer patients.

The Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation has introduced extended hours and same-day appointments for screening mammographies in Castro Valley. Call 510-247-6350 to make an appointment on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 8 a.m.-9 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 8 a.m. -5 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
