A message from our Board Chair about the 2019 Annual Fund
2019 Annual Fund
As a nonprofit, Cheshire Medical Center relies on the generosity of people like you. We’ve been here for 126 years, caring for the health and wellness of the region. Today, we hope you will be there for us.
Today, we are asking the Community to come together around an important need – to help Cheshire Medical Center purchase a 128-slice, state-of-the-art CT scanner. Our 64-slice CT scanner is eight years old and nearing the end of its useful life. Staying on the leading-edge of medicine is challenging given our budget constraints. It means embracing new technology as well as replacing our older equipment when needed, and reaching out to you to help bring this life-saving technology to your nonprofit community hospital.
Last year Cheshire Medical Center conducted over 12,000 CT scans. The scans detected and helped diagnose a variety of conditions such as stroke, cancer, cardiovascular disease and trauma from accidents–quickly, accurately, and painlessly. These scans happened 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We hope we can count on your financial support.
“We strive to offer cutting-edge technologies that support the best possible outcomes for our patients,” said Abe Howe, Associate Director of Radiology Services. “By upgrading Cheshire Medical Center’s CT scanner, patients will receive high-resolution exams without having to travel far from home.”
Please consider a gift today. With your help, exceptional care remains strong and close to home for you, your family and neighbors. Your donation to the Cheshire Health Foundation to purchase this new CT scanner will have a positive impact on patient care in our community.
Your support moves us closer to our mission of providing clinical and service excellence, collaboration, and compassion for every patient, every time.
And remember – every dollar you give stays right here to benefit local patient care.
