Foundation Completes $2 Million Campaign
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 Valley Hospital 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
The 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.
Driven by Donor Generosity
The humbling generosity of our donors and pragmatic hospital leadership to turn this project into a reality truly motivates the Foundation in being a partner to bring the best healthcare into our region. - Zach Barborinas, Campaign co-chair
Providing quicker interventions
As a breast cancer survivor, I know the new Women's Imaging Center with advanced equipment and technology will provide the region's patients with excellent diagnostics, quicker intervention and the best cancer care, right here at home. - Christie Peterson, Campaign co-chair
Mammograms save lives
Early detection is the most important thing in cancer treatment and getting regular mammograms is one of the best methods of early detection. - Thanuttra Tomeoka, Survivor
Bringing quality, comprehensive care close to home
Early detection saves lives. I was one of the one in eight, facing a scary diagnosis. Almost 11 years later, with advanced technology, early detection can be made earlier. This brings hope of saving more lives from breast cancer. - Lynn Walker, Survivor
