Women's Imaging Center Project

49_HealthQuestSummer2018-7Your mother, your sister, your daughter, you. The statistics are hard to ignore. One in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.

We also know that breast cancer is highly treatable when diagnosed early and early detection also allows for effective and less toxic treatment.

With that goal in mind, Skagit Regional Health, in a trusted partnership with Skagit Radiology, is creating a Women’s Imaging Center in a new, modern facility in Mount Vernon.

The Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation is honored to be a part of this project and has announced a $2 million capital campaign to assist in raising funds to make the Women’s Imaging Center a reality.

The $2 million will allow the acquisition of:

  • Two Digital Breast Tomosynthesis
  • 3D mammography units
  • Three ultrasound units
  • One stereotactic biopsy table
  • One CT Scanner
  • One state-of-the-art MRI unit with breast coil

This new imaging center, along with the knowledge of dedicated radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and the excellence of Skagit Regional Health’s Cancer Care Center, will create a facility for comprehensive breast cancer detection and treatment.

With your support we will help countless women in our community. Your gift, of any size is meaningful, and will make a positive difference in the lives of cancer patients for decades to come. The Foundation also welcomes gifts made in honor of a loved one. Anonymous gifts are gratefully accepted as well.

The Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation is offering naming opportunities to recognize generous individuals, families, corporations and foundations that support this important effort.
