Wamego Hospital Foundation

Goal: $20,000.00

Specific Need

Wamego Hospital Foundation’s fundraising campaign to upgrade mammography equipment to 3D launched in mid-2019. In an effort to make the technology available to Wamego Health Center patients as soon as possible, the foundation purchased the equipment prior to fundraising being complete.

 

By March 2020, the new equipment was installed and patients now have access to the gold standard in early breast cancer detection without the burden of traveling out of town.

 

The fundraising campaign continues with proceeds offsetting the $321,580 purchase price of the equipment.

 

The benefits to 3D mammography are: 

· A 3D mammogram produces more than 200 images of the breast tissue whereas 2D produces only 4 images

· Studies show 3D technology improves detecting breast cancer by 27 to 50 percent

· 3D mammograms are better at finding more invasive types of cancer, giving patients earlier and better treatment options

· 3D mammography helps reduce the number of false positive results and callbacks

 

Mission

Our mission is to support the Wamego Health Center in achieving excellence in medical services by funding upgrades to facilities and equipment, as well as programs that promote wellness and access to superb, local healthcare.
