Des Moines, IA and Tacoma, WA

With the help of votes from CHI employees and friends, the cancer centers at Mercy Medical Center, Des Moines, IA, and St. Joseph Medical Center, Tacoma, WA, received $10,000 each in funding from the LiveStrong Foundation’s Community Impact Project. The grants will support Joint Commission certification for advanced palliative care programs at the cancer centers. After more than 450,000 online votes were cast, the LiveStrong Foundation awarded grants to cancer centers in 90 communities across the country.
