Early Detection Saves Lives Campaign Reaches Goal

Thanks to the generosity and support of the community, Rutland Regional Medical Center recently exceeded its $350,000 goal in support of the Early Detection Saves Lives campaign to bring new 3D breast imaging technology to our local region. The Rutland Health Foundation, the fundraising department of Rutland Regional Medical Center, reported $362,523 gifts and pledges raised as of 12/31/17.

Community support continues to make a difference for our patients,” said Tom Huebner, Rutland Regional President and CEO. “We are truly grateful for the generosity and support received from our local community, our dedicated donors, as well as volunteers and staff who helped us reach this important goal to bring new 3D breast imaging technology to our local region.

Rutland Regional’s team of caring and compassionate breast care specialists are committed to breast cancer prevention, early detection and treatment. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. The new 3D technology will enable superior breast imaging and detection of abnormalities at an earlier stage, which can help save lives.

With the acquisition of the new machines, Rutland Regional Medical Center will be the first facility in Vermont to have this newest generation of three dimensional technology. This is a leap forward in our technology, and I am excited the community can be a part of it,” added Dr. Daniel Mitchell, Director of Radiology at Rutland Regional.

With the campaign now complete, Rutland Regional will purchase two new 3D breast imaging machines in February, with a plan to install the new machines in late Spring and be fully operational in early July 2018.
