JCHC Searching Options for New Mammography Machine

The Johnson County Healthcare Center is needing to replace their current mammography machine with a newer model, and are looking at options on how to raise funds for it.

CEO Sean McCallister reported to the board that the facility's current machine is nine years old and is old-style 2 dimensional technology, while the newer models are 3D technology.

McCallister and Radiology Manager Todd Wagner gave a presentation to the JCHC Foundation, hoping they might be willing to fund the purchase, but other options are still on the table, such as finding a donor, or some kind of combination of the two.

McCallister explained the benefits of the new machine.

No decision was made by the board and the healthcare center will continue to look at their options.
