Dark Skies and Black Ties Gala

Summit Healthcare's Dark Skies and Black Ties Gala was held Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012 at Hon-Dah Resort's Convention Center. Guest speaker and Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl spoke during the event. He spoke of his battle with cancer twice and emphasized how a positive mental attitude is vital in battling the disease. The hospital announced the expansion and new name for the Summit Healthcare Cancer Center. C.E.O. Ron McArthur said, "a lot of people do not recognize the name oncology, changing the name to Summit Healthcare Cancer Center is easily recognizable as to what the Center can do for the community." According to their website, "The expansion gives Summit Healthcare Cancer Center a new look on the outside with a covered drop off entrance, healing garden and terrace, inside will be remodeled with an atrium, consulting and education rooms and on-site pharmacy. Summit Healthcare's Foundation has taken on the Cancer Center's expansion project and is looking to break ground in late 2013. To make a donation to support the cancer center expansion call Errin Butler at (928) 537-6783."
