Mammography Upgrades

Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in women - one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection and advancements in screenings are key factors in improving outcomes. Digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3D mammography, is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic imaging tool that provides much clearer images of abnormalities within dense breast tissue, and reduces "false alarms" and patient callbacks for additional imaging by up to 40 percent. Effective treatment begins with proper diagnosis and Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital strives to use the latest in imaging technology to help our team provide accurate diagnoses and timely results. The cost for a new 3D tomosynthesis unit at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital is $375,000.

Innovation Fund

Every year, Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital has technology and equipment needs totaling about $250,000. The Innovation Fund has been established to enable hospital leaders to respond quickly to opportunities that arise to improve the way patient care is delivered. Supporting equipment and technology needs will help keep Paul Oliver the gem of our community and first choice for both the seasonal and full-time residents of Benzie County.
