VALLEY CITY, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) -Patients at CHI Mercy Health have access to the latest computed tomography (CT) diagnostic technology made possible through a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust’s Rural Healthcare Programs.
Helmsley awarded CHI Mercy Health $400,000 for a new 64-slice CT scanner in April 2017. CT scanners provide essential diagnostic images of structures inside the body. The new scanner produces high-quality images, allowing medical staff to quickly determine the health status and course of treatment for patients in this area.
CHI Mercy Health Vice President of Clinical Services Camille Settelmeyer talked about the advantages of having this new CT scanner in this community.
