Striving for Diagnostic Excellence
Waitlists for important tests can be lengthy, and health problems can intensify as patients stand by. Our community deserves earlier access to scans and clearer answers to their ailments – now.
We need your help to bolster access to diagnostic imaging and help get more patients the scans and tests they need earlier.
Let's work together to better the environment of care for our community.
Priority Equipment: A Wish List to Alleviate Waitlists
Picture this: better imaging technology for more accurate diagnoses – in less time.
A patient arrives in the emergency room with rib pain after a car accident. Another comes in with chest tightness. They both need diagnostic scans to determine the extent of their injuries and how to treat them.
St. Mary’s has been on the forefront of caring for our community since 1924. Because government funding doesn’t cover new or replacement equipment, we rely on community donations to continue providing quality care.
Why diagnostic imaging matters: Wendi's story.
Wendi's story highlights the importance of quick and accurate diagnosis – something St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation is concentrating its fundraising efforts on over the next few years.
Here's what we're looking to fund:
Hybrid Imaging Camera (SPECT-CT)
General X-Ray Machine
Heart Lung Machine
Nerve Monitoring System
How having the latest medical technology benefits patient care:
Decreases wait times
Increases testing capacity
Offers clearer results and information to better diagnose patients
Provides comfort to patients and minimizes injury to staff
Our community relies on generosity from caring individuals and organizations to support the delivery of compassionate and innovative care at St. Mary's General Hospital.
