Hospital Receives $400,000 Grant for Cutting-Edge Diagnostic Tool from Helmsley Charitable Trust


Patients at George C. Grape Community Hospital will soon benefit from 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 Program.

Helmsley has awarded George C. Grape Community Hospital $400,000 for a new 64-slice CT scanner. CT scanners provide essential diagnostic images of structures inside the body. A new CT scanner will allow for faster scans that produce high-quality images, allowing medical staff to quickly determine health status and course of treatment while giving patients access to up-to-date healthcare technology close to home.

"We're incredibly grateful to the Helmsley Charitable Trust for this grant. By acquiring a new, state of the art CT scanner, the people in our region will have access to the highest quality of CT scans. This will lead to more effective diagnosis and treatment, and eliminate the need for people in our communities to travel to larger facilities for this service," said Mike O'Neal, CEO, George C. Grape Community Hospital.
