MMCSC names Outpatient Infusion Unit after Pine Belt family

Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus has named its outpatient infusion unit the Pine Belt Family Infusion Center, in honor of longtime philanthropists and hospital supporters, the Pine Belt family of car dealerships, the medical center announced.

For more than three decades, the Pine Belt family has provided unwavering support to MMCSC and the surrounding communities.

The Sickel family, together with the Trebino family, led by Mike Trebino, president of Pine Belt Automotive, have donated $750,000 toward the naming of the Outpatient Infusion Unit, where patients are treated for cancer and receive other lifesaving infusions on a daily basis.

Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, together with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, provides patients access to the most advanced treatment options, including clinical trials, close to home. MMCSC is an RWJBarnabas Health facility,

“Our families are proud advocates for Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, and the RWJBarnabas Health system,” Robert Sickel said. “The hospital is a vital part of the Lakewood community, and the compassionate care and excellence shown by the team in the Pine Belt Family Infusion Center mirrors our commitment to the community we all serve.”

Eric Carney, the CEO of Monmouth Medical Center and MMCSC, said the hospital is grateful for the continued support.

“We are very thankful for such a generous donation from the Pine Belt families,” he said. “Their steadfast commitment to our hospital and the wider community is truly admirable.”

Staffed by nurses specialized in oncology and chemotherapy, the outpatient infusion unit at Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus is committed to personalized, quality care and education. It offers state-of-the-art technology in newly renovated semi-private and private rooms with reclining chairs and flat screen televisions to make patients as comfortable as possible.
