Donors and friends of St. John Hospital and Medical Center (SJH&MC) gathered on April 14, 2008, to celebrate the dedication of the Van Elslander Pavilion's third private floor, North 6, which will care for oncology patients. The floor was made possible through the generosity of Anthony L. Soave and family of Grosse Point Farms, and is part of the $30 million capital campaign for SJH&MC. Anthony Soave is President and Chief Executive Officer of Soave Enterprises, a privately-held, Detroit-based company with holdings in dozens of companies.

"Anthony Soave is a uniquely visionary individual who brings excitement and a 'can do' attitude wherever he goes," said David Stephens, President and CEO of SJH&MC. "In addition, Soave is a lifelong Detroiter who believes in this area, and in St. John Hospital and Medical Center. We are so thankful for his generosity."

The Soave floor, also known as North 6, has 36 large patient rooms designed to enhance the healing environment and maximize comfort for patients and their families. In addition, the rooms have been designed with families in mind, and include beautiful furniture and fixtures, private bathrooms and sofas to allow overnight stays by family members. The privacy of the rooms is enhanced by sound absorbing materials that will help maintain a quiet and peaceful environment. Each room has a flat-screen television and state-of-the-art cardiac monitoring.

Additionally, the Soave floor has a welcoming waiting room, family conference room, physicians team conference room, architecture to support SJH&MC's migration to computerized charting, and custom nurse work space that keeps the caregivers close to the patients.
