As a celebration of fifty years of service to the Dansville area the Hindle Funeral Home Inc. has made a charitable donation in the amount of $5,000 to the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center, at Noyes Memorial Hospital.

“We do this in the name of all of the families we have served since 1966”, said owner, Carl Hindle, “Lisa, Christian, and I want to personally thank all the families that made this donation possible by placing their trust in us to serve them”.

 

The Hindle Funeral Home was founded in 1946 by Theodore E. Baird. In 1966 Charles E. and JoAnn Hindle purchased the business from the late Ted and Walter E. (Gene) Baird. Edward and his wife

 

JoAnn operated the funeral home until their retirement in 1995. Carl and Lisa Hindle then took over ownership of the business and continue to run it today with their son a third generation funeral director, Christian E. Hindle.

 

The Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center is a collaboration of UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute, Jones Memorial Hospital and UR Medicine Radiation Oncology, along with Noyes Health. The Cancer Center will be located on the campus of Noyes Hospital and provide patients in the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier and Western New York more convenient access to comprehensive cancer care. It will serve as a hub for oncology services, and it includes a medical oncology clinic at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, Allegany County, and a UR Medicine Radiation Oncology clinic in Hornell, Steuben County.

 

Established with a $2 million gift from Ann and Carl Myers, the regional cancer center at Noyes is expected to be completed in early 2017. The $5.8 million project will feature a 4,500 square foot lower level addition to house a radiation oncology clinic and a 2,300 square foot medical oncology clinic featuring three exam rooms and seven chemotherapy/infusion chairs in renovated and new first-floor space.

 

“We are thrilled with this generous donation from the Hindle family and encourage other local businesses to support the Cancer Center project,” said Noyes Health Foundation Director, Cynthia Oswald. “We are currently kicking off our local business fundraising campaign and can’t thank Hindle Funeral Home, Inc. enough for leading the way with their support”.
