Bluewater Health Foundation Urgent Needs

Each year, hospital and medical staff develop a prioritized list of medical equipment and technology that is needed at Bluewater Health. It is your generous support that allows us to acquire many of these critical items, further allowing us to provide the best possible care at our community hospital. Below is a sampling of some of this year's priority needs. For more information contact us.

Mammography Equipment

Mammography Equipment

Department:
Diagnostic Imaging
Cost:
$1,000,000

Bluewater Health’s current mammography equipment is nearing the end of its lifespan and, as a result, the Mammography Department has experienced increased downtime. To improve patient experience, two mammography machines, one of which will be equipped with new innovations like tomosynthesis and contrast enhanced imaging, need to be purchased. In addition, this equipment will be more ergonomically friendly and provide a more comfortable experience for patients during tests. These new machines will keep Bluewater Health on the cutting edge of early detection and accurate diagnosis. Note: picture is not the exact piece of equipment being purchased, but is shown for reference.
