Foundation Completes $2 Million Campaign: Women's Imaging Center

When it comes to Breast Cancer early detection saves lives. Providing high quality, comprehensive breast cancer detection requires a fully equipped imaging center with state-of-the-art technology. The Skagit Regional Health Foundation understood this need and committed to raise $2 million to help build and equip a new Women's Imaging Center to serve patients in the region.

An Opportunity to Revolutionize Breast Cancer Detection in the Region

Women's Imaging Center ExteriorThe Women's Imaging Center resides inside the 4,000 square foot Skagit Imaging Pavilion adjacent to Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon. Dedicated to breast imaging, the Women's Imaging Center features state-of-the-art equipment including 3D Digital Breast Tomosynthesis mammography, ultrasound, CT, MRI and Stereotactic Breast Biopsy.
