An Infusion of Comfort and Cheer

Howard and Phyllis Loiterstein and Margie Imo stepped forward to support some key patient experience improvements in the Cancer Center at Missouri Baptist Medical Center. Phyllis, a breast cancer survivor who received chemotherapy in the Infusion Center, understands the impact the treatment environment can play on a patient’s well-being and so she and Howard donated the new Infusion Center curtains. “The curtains brighten up the place and give privacy. I’m happy to do anything to cheer up patients,”

Phyllis says. In addition, “the exam chair is designed to be significantly more patient friendly and accommodating to the patient’s height, weight and ability to transfer from standing to sitting or from a wheelchair to the table. I now experience a degree of neuropathy so I’m more aware of the need for more accessible chairs like this,” Phyllis says.

Margie also directed her gift to purchase a new cancer clinic exam table chair. “I just hope through trying times, these chairs make patients’ experience a little better,” Margie says. “We want to serve the St. Louis community that has been so good to us.”
