Nanticoke Health Services announced its cancer center, located in Seaford, is being renamed in honor of Barbara and Chick Allen, recognizing their gift of more than $1 million for cancer care services at the hospital.

The Allens have been longtime supporters of Nanticoke, previously contributing to the expansion of the cardiac catheterization program and the hospital’s capital campaign in 2016. With their 2017 contribution, the Allen’s continue their commitment to making health care available to their family, friends and neighbors in Western Sussex County.

Through this gift, the Allen Cancer Center at Nanticoke will establish a new pharmacy and lab specifically for cancer patients. The project also includes updates to the façade, entrance and lobby areas, making the environment more relaxing for patients and their families and friends supporting them during care.
