SOMERVILLE, NJ -- The Paul R. Nardoni Foundation has donated $12,500 to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital/Somerset to enhance care for cancer patients.

The funds will be used to purchase new furnishings for the family lounge on the hospital’s Paul R. Nardoni Oncology Pavilion and to support a transportation fund for patients at the hospital’s Steeplechase Cancer Center who do not have transportation for their cancer treatments and doctors’ appointments.

“Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset provides personalized, compassionate cancer care in state-of-the-art facilities,” said Roseann Nardoni, chairwoman of the Paul R. Nardoni Foundation. “We are proud to help ensure that Central New Jersey residents and their families have access to the care they need close to home.”

The foundation helped to fund the Paul R. Nardoni Oncology Pavilion, a 35-bed unit for cancer patients that opened at the hospital in April 2005. The unit features rooms with private baths with handicapped-accessible showers, flat-screen televisions, DVD players and sleeper sofas or reclining chairs for family members wishing to stay overnight.  The pavilion is named in memory of Paul Nardoni, who died in 2001 after a five-year battle with Hodgkin’s disease.

The Nardoni Foundation also made a leadership gift to support the fundraising campaign for The Steeplechase Cancer Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient facility that opened on the medical center’s campus in 2007. The center houses the Sanofi U.S. Breast Care Program, radiation oncology services, infusion therapy, a lung cancer screening program, a tobacco cessation program, oncologists’ offices, clinical research, complementary medicine services and the Sanofi U.S. Wellness Boutique.

“We are extremely grateful to the Paul R. Nardoni Foundation for their continued generosity which has made a tremendous difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families in our community in so many ways, from helping support new cancer facilities and technologies to providing the little things that are so important to patients’ comfort and care,” said Tony Cava, RWJUH/Somerset chief administrative officer.
