1 West Oncology Unit Renovations
The Foundation committed $750,000 to this project, which is now complete. The 1 West Unit at Lourdes will offer oncology, Hospice and palliative care patients and their families an area within the hospital dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs when facing a terminal illness.
da Vinci® Robot
The Foundation recently committed $1.7 million to the hospital for the acquisition of the da Vinci Robot. This 21st century robotic technology will greatly assist Lourdes in providing surgical procedures that are less invasive, less painful, and that offer patients a faster recovery time.

In August 2009, the new Hope Dispensary of the Southern Tier opened in Binghamton. This center provides free prescription drugs for low-income individuals and patients in the Tri-City area. The Foundation will support the operation of the Hope Dispensary by subsidizing the cost of the rent for the center.
