On April 13th, 2017 OMA Oregon therapists provided hand massages to the Ladies of Hillcrest Committee as part of the 5 year anniversary of their financial support toward the Noel Lesley Infusion Center located in the Providence Medical Center in Medford Oregon. During his cancer treatment, Noel Lesley wanted to establish a comfort-centered infusion room setting that provided a nurturing atmosphere so patients could better relax and feel like family. After his death, his wife, Mary took this task on and through the generous help of Hillcrest Committee, Noel’s vision continues. With OMA now providing relaxation massage for the patients, his full vision is even more represented.
Patients consistently remark on how comfortable and relaxing the Noel Lesley infusion room is to get their treatment. With just three recliners and one bed, the staff can provide one on one care and individual attention. Providence also provides free meals to the patients and free hand and foot massages courtesy of OMA.
