St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute staff, along with representatives of St. Luke’s Eastern Oregon Medical Associates, hosted a community “Chemo Ball” highlighting the opening of the new chemotherapy suite at the Baker City clinic.St. Luke’s MSTI has been providing outreach clinics at the Baker City clinic on a monthly basis for many years. About 317 patients traveled from the Baker City service area to MSTI-Fruitland for cancer treatment in the year ending Sept. 31, 2012. Since chemotherapy was added to MSTI-Baker City in June 2013, many of those patients receive treatment closer to home.
“MSTI patients will still need to travel to Fruitland to see their oncologists for periodic follow-ups and for more aggressive/higher risk chemo treatments,” says Brad Holland, site manager for MSTI-Fruitland and Baker City. “It may seem small, but for every patient we are able to treat in Baker, we save 150 miles of fuel, drive time, and dangerous road conditions. Definitely a Triple Aim (better health, better care and lower costs) bulls eye!”
The Baker City Specialty Clinic is co-op between Eastern Oregon Medical Associates, MSTI, St. Luke’s Heart, Urology, Pulmonology, Medical Imaging, Echo, and in the near future, Nephrology. So patients of other St. Luke’s services are traveling fewer miles as well.
The community driven growth of the services in the Baker City area is a superb example of how St. Luke’s is creating an exceptional patient experience, Holland said.
During the "Chemo Ball," the public joined local survivors and caregivers to tour the facility and receive a Fighting Cancer Together pin.Attendees learned about the different services provided by the clinic, including how and why certain procedures are given for cancer treatment. Following the tour, attendees gathered to enjoy refreshments, including purple hors d'oeuvres and refreshments inspired by the survivorship theme — and to share stories.Many thanks to all who helped make the “Chemo Ball” such a success!

How do you define health? Physical? Mental? Social? Health goes beyond medical care. It's how we take care of ourselves, how we interact with our communities, how we take care of each other.
Let St. Luke's support your health, however you define it.
