A naming celebration took place at Bayhealth Kent General this week, honoring the late Gregory S. Kramedas. Bayhealth has acknowledged a generous gift from Avelina Kramedas with a plaque outside the multi-disciplinary conference room in the Bayhealth Cancer Center, Kent General.
Family, friends, and caregivers gathered at the Cancer Center to celebrate the life of Gregory Kramedas and recognize the patient-centered care that takes place in this space.
This conference room is the home of the Multi-Disciplinary Cancer Conference, where surgeons, oncologists, pulmonologists (lung physicians), radiologists, and others meet regularly to review and develop individualized care plans that follow national guidelines.
This meeting ensures that each provider who may care for the patient throughout the process is included in the conversation from the beginning. It is sponsored by the Bayhealth Cancer Institute.
Dr. Rishi Sawhney, medical director of the Bayhealth Cancer Institute, thanked the Kramedas family and shared his insights into the room’s meaning for cancer patients.
“Studies have shown that multi-D programs improve survival outcomes and quality of life for cancer patients,” said Sawhney. “The multi-D conference room is the ‘control center' at the heart of our cancer care program.”
Avelina Kramedas’ thoughtful gift will ensure that Bayhealth can continue to provide the very best patient care to our cancer patients.
