A Note from Samaritan Healthcare Foundation: 2016 Project

Posted on Aug 01, 2016

Samaritan Healthcare Foundation has set a goal to raise $207,000 this year for the purchase of a Philips EPIQ 7 Ultrasound System. This versatile machine will be able to serve a wide array of patients at Samaritan Healthcare.

Some of its functions include:

  •  Breast & Biopsy Ultrasound
  •  Vascular Ultrasound
  •  OB/GYN Ultrasound
  •  Pediatric Ultrasound
  •  General ultrasound

This state –of-the-art machine also has the capability to provide both 2-D and 3-D imaging, as well as Color Flow and Pulsed Doppler.

Over the past 3 years, ultrasound utilization volumes have risen over 30%, and that trend is projected to continue.

With the purchase of this third machine, Samaritan patients will no longer have to wait two or more weeks for a procedure, increasing both access and quality of care to our  patients.

We are excited about the Philips EPIQ 7 Ultrasound System coming to Samaritan Healthcare. Please join us as we move toward the future of healthcare with this ambitious project!
