The Foundation’s Next Campaign Priority:
Endoscopy Equipment – $200,000+
Endoscopy is the term used for the visual inspection of the internal parts of the body using an endoscope. An endoscopy is a procedure in which your doctor uses specialized instruments to view and operate on the internal organs and vessels of your body. It allows surgeons to see problems within your body without making large incisions.
A surgeon inserts an endoscope through a small cut or an opening in the body such as the mouth. An endoscope is a flexible tube with an attached camera that allows your doctor to see and investigate. A screen in the operating room allows the doctor to view what the endoscope sees.
Endoscopy programs and services are essential in the prevention and early detection of *numerous diseases and conditions such as cancer. Its equipment has a lifespan and requires upkeep, updates, and replacements to maintain its efficiency.
Gastroscopies, colonoscopies, and sigmoidoscopies are all offered in our clinic. We have an excellent team of endoscopists. Please note that appointments are by physician referral only.
We are fortunate and proud to have this service in our community.
Help us take care of it.
We need your help to raise funds for this valuable program!
The price tag for this sophisticated equipment is considerable at just over $200,000.00. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has interfered with our signature fundraising events which, typically boast significant support and attendance from the community. We look forward to gathering safely once again soon. Until then, we are confident that we can achieve this goal through the determination, heart and generosity of our donors, our community.
Please donate today to help us in our mission to maintain advanced patient care and services to our local community.
