Viking State Bank & Trust recently presented a $5000 gift to the Winneshiek Medical Center Foundation Annual Fund. The WMC Foundation has committed to raising $85,000 to support the next upgrade of the mammography machine to 3D imaging.
3D mammography is a relatively new screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool to improve the early detection of breast cancer. Low-dose images from different angles around the breast are used to create the 3D picture. The detailed images allow for a better evaluation of the breast tissue, layer by layer. 3D mammography also can provide better images of dense breast tissue than conventional mammography, and is now covered by most insurance plans.
Holly Kanengieter, coordinator of the WMC Foundation, says, "Giving is … helping build a strong local health care system. Thank you to Viking State Bank & Trust for their continued giving and support of Winneshiek Medical Center."
Community giving is important to providing care to area residents. Gifts can be made online at winmedical.org/giving or by calling the WMC Foundation Office at 563-387-3129.
