Pana Community Hospital is in the process of upgrading one major piece of their equipment. Last December, the Pana Community Hospital Foundation pledged $200,000 to the hospital to help them purchase 3D Mammography. Kim Rodgers, Executive Director of the Pana Community Hospital Foundation, said since they have started, they have raised $170,000.
Rodgers said 3D Mammography is much more accurate than what the hospital has now which is Digital Mammography, which can, at times, have false positives.
Rodgers said the Foundation is holding two fundraisers in October, one called “Bowl for Breast Cancer” and the other “Volley for the Cause.” Rodgers said donations can be made at give.panahospital.com or call her at 217-562-6340. Rodgers appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
