West Plains Bank supports OMC Cancer Treatment Center project
West Plains Bank has made a generous gift to the Ozarks Medical Center
Foundation to support “Nurturing Hope: A Community Cancer Project.”
The project includes the expansion of the center’s chemotherapy
suite, the construction of a healing garden and the purchase of new equipment.
OMC has already invested $755,000 new technology, which will allow the
center to treat lung cancer with the very latest treatment options. The
Foundation has embarked on a community campaign to raise an additional
$1.2 million to complete an expansion of the Cancer Treatment Center.
“We are asking the community to join us in leaving a legacy of nurturing
and hope for our loved ones who have or will undergo cancer treatment,”
said Ward Franz, OMC Foundation Executive Director. Pictured, front row,
