Wide Bore MRI system

Organization Profile

The mission of the Columbus Community Hospital Foundation is to build goodwill and financial support for the Hospital.

Project Description

A new wide MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) system will allow Columbus Community Hospital to offer patients the comfort of an open bore system, as well as the high-quality imaging of a closed bore system. This new technology will provide a better patient experience, premium image quality and reduced exam times. 

With a 70 cm opening, the wide bore system will allow us to comfortably image patients who may have been unable to tolerate these scans in the past, due to the patient’s size or claustrophobia.  The increased speed of the new system will allow shorter exam times, which is beneficial to patients who are having pain and unable to remain motionless for the amount of time needed to complete the exam.

Your help is needed to purchase this important upgrade for our Hospital. Proceeds from the 2017 Golf Outing will be used for this purpose. Please consider making a generous donation to the Foundation. Call 402.562.3377 or email foundation@columbushosp.org to make a donation.

Any donation, large or small, is helpful and will be combined with others to make a big difference.  Thank you from the Foundation Board and staff.
