PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center of Vancouver, Wash., has received a $1.2 million donation from local businessman Don Heimbigner and his family. A PeaceHealth Southwest infusion center will be named the Elaine and Don Heimbigner Oncology Infusion Center. Elaine Heimbigner died of cancer in 2016. The donation is the first major gift in the medical center's $10 million Cancer Care Campaign. The goal is to fund a renovation of inpatient cancer services, create a charity fund for cancer patients and to locate the infusion center with a radiation center.
