“A picture is worth a thousand words” doesn’t come close to capturing the value of the images in a CT scan. High-resolution CT scan images can show that a headache was just a headache, or that a personalized treatment plan needs to get underway. For our patients and their loved ones, experiencing moments like these close to home can make a world of difference.
We are excited to share that the Cheshire Health Foundation Board of Trustees, following discussions with Cheshire Medical Center board members and senior leaders, have launched their annual appeal to fund a much needed new CT scanner at Cheshire Medical Center.
CT (computed tomography) scanners are vital imaging devices for any hospital– perhaps the most important diagnostic tool. Over 12,000 CT scans were performed at Cheshire Medical Center last year.
The proposed new scanner will provide state-of-the-art CT scanning for the Greater Monadnock Region, to detect and help diagnose, or rule out, a wide variety of diseases and conditions–quickly, accurately, and painlessly.
We are grateful for the over 125 years of partnership with our community to support our healthcare mission. The collaboration between Cheshire Health Foundation and Cheshire Medical Center helps ensure valuable innovations, services, and programs for patients at Cheshire Medical Center.
Cheshire Health Foundation cultivates and stewards charitable support and inspires local residents to participate in supporting healthcare in our region. Our community’s contributions through the Foundation stay local, ensuring that quality healthcare close to home in the Monadnock Region will remain strong at our non-profit medical center for generations to come.
