Comfort Project 360

Cancer has changed the lives of Hyla Weiss and Suzanne Unger in very different ways. Their unique-yet-similar connection to cancer inspired them to join forces to transform the patient experience at Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Cancer Centers. Established in 2014, Comfort Project 360 complements the outstanding care provided by The Cancer Center’s oncology teams by creating supportive and healing environments in which patients and their loved ones are treated.

Changing the Cancer Care Experience

Each and every gift to Comfort Project 360 enhances patient comfort and well-being. Generous donations and community support have enabled Comfort Project 360 to fund meaningful renovations and introduce important programs and amenities into Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Cancer Centers. Comfort Project 360’s ongoing patient programs include:

Comfort Cart –A mobile cart that delivers healthy snacks to patients with a personal touch.
Welcome Kits filled with items to soothe body, mind and spirit.
It’s a Wrap –Scarves and hats to welcome new patients and celebrate the completion of treatment.

With renovation complete in Radiation Oncology, we are now focused on transforming the Cancer Center in the East Wing into a more comforting and compassionate environment. Currently underway, Phase One of this multi-phase project is remodeling the Cancer Center’s two waiting areas into a more uplifting environment, creating a supportive and relaxing Ella Platnick Short Stay Suite and illuminating hallways with beautiful artwork.

We seek your support as we embark on Phase Two of this exciting project. Our goal is to introduce thoughtful changes to the Cancer Center’s twenty-three infusion rooms, creating a more soothing environment for the nearly 100 patients that receive chemotherapy or infusions in this space every day.
