3D Mammography is coming to Pana Community Hospital and fundraising efforts are now underway to offset the costs of the new machine. Cindy Miles, Diagnostic Imaging Manager at PCH, told Regional Radio News that a committee is formed, comprising of representatives of the PCH Board, Foundation Board, community members, PCH employees, and physicians.
slogan for the fundraising efforts is “3D Mammography – The Clear Choice” with many events planned to raise funds and to raise awareness of the importance of detecting cancer in its earliest stages through 3D mammography. Miles says the 3D Mammography machine is the latest technology on the market and will be an upgrade of the machine they currently have.
The estimated cost of the equipment is $450,000. The public can look up the upcoming events online. To donate online, you can go to give.panahospital.com. More information can be obtained by calling Kim Rodgers at 562-6340.
