Replacement of X-ray Diagnostic Equipment:


The hospital is moving ahead with plans to remove the present x-ray equipment and replace it

with digital technology in 2021. The new technology will result in direct transfer of x-ray images

to radiologists and healthcare providers. The cost of replacing both the room-based x-ray equipment and the portable x-ray equipment is $777,000.

With the generous support of many corporate and individual donors, the Foundation has donated $500,000 towards this cause. Other community partners have also contributed. We are on the homestretch, with the goal of raising the final $80,000 in 2021.


Laboratory Equipment:  


The goal is to raise $40,000 in the month of February 2021 to purchase a piece of laboratory

equipment, called “CellaVision”. CellaVision will aid the Laboratory technologists in quickly

differentiating abnormal white blood cells saving valuable technologist time and improving

response time to the patient’s doctor. With CellaVision samples can be sent electronically and

reviewed same day by the pathologist, ensuring a faster diagnosis which will get the patient

the treatment they need. CellaVision will also allow technologists to connect with morphology

experts for real time consultations which is extremely helpful in identifying uncommon



Stress EKG Equipment:


Cardiac stress test system with treadmill and blood pressure module.
