Fountain Caf now open

March 25, 2011

Fountain Caf offers nourishment and a relaxing environment On Feb. 2, the final element of Providence Cancer Center fell into place as a crowd of nearly 100 gathered for the dedication and blessing of the new Fountain Caf. When the cancer center opened three years ago, as a cost-saving measure the caf area was left undeveloped until a later date. Now, the support of Providence Portland Medical Foundation has allowed the caf to be completed. The foundation board recognizes that patients' ability to heal and recover can be greatly affected by the nutrition they receive. In addition, loved ones' ability to lend support is affected by their level of energy or stress. The Fountain Caf offers patients and loved ones a place where they can nourish the body and replenish the mind and spirit. Be sure to check out this newest dining facility, which serves fresh and healthy food selections in an inviting environment. The caf is located on the first floor near the Fountain of Hope.
