Breast Biopsy Devices Pitch Victorious at Women's Giving Circle 2019

WGC2019WinnerA pitch to replace and upgrade breast biopsy devices in the Diagnostic Imaging department at South Shore Regional Hospital was the project of choice by those who attended the 2019 Charm Diamond Centres’ Women’s Giving Circle.

The project was one of four vying for the $10,000 in funding from the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, and presenting to the annual gathering of over 100 people at the Best Western Plus Bridgewater, Wednesday night.

“We are sending the biopsy devices we have out for repairs more often as they are getting old and worn,” notes Linda Roy, Breast Screening Coordinator at South Shore Regional, who made the winning pitch on behalf of her department.

“The repair process lately has been lengthy and could potentially delay the biopsy booking if we don’t have enough devices available. There are also newer biopsy devices available that would allow us to perform breast biopsies currently not possible due to the geometric factors of the mammography machine.”

In previous years, the Women’s Giving Circle has funded educational videos for naloxone kits, laparoscopic equipment, a hand-held ultrasound (a V-SCAN) and several other projects.

The Health Services Foundation is thankful for all who took time to attend and support this event.
