The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation wants to upgrade its X-ray and it needs the public’s help
The foundation is kicking off their annual Tree of Lights Christmas campaign and will run it all this month. The foundation is looking to raise $70,000 for an upgrade to its X-ray equipment. Acting Charge Technologist Cathy Amiate says the piece that is to be upgraded is what she calls the wall detector. She says it will help vastly improve diagnostics in the hospital with real time and crisp images for chest x-rays as well stomach x-rays. Toni Laveign Conway, Executive Director of the Foundation, says that this upgrade will help keep the quality of care high at St. Francis Memorial Hospital.
Tree lighting ceremonies will be hosted by the foundation in support of the campaign. This will start off with the Killaloe Tree of Peace lighting going down November 29th at the town office. Palmer Rapids Lions Club will be lighting their Tree of Love around that time as well. The foundation will also have a tree lighting in Barry’s Bay on Friday December 6th at 6:30 PM at the railway station. The Foundation says that it will host Giving Tuesday on December 5th, saying any donation made that day will be matched.
Events will be going on until up to the end of December.
