Hospital Looks to Federal Funding for Equipment Upgrade

Glendale Memorial Hospital could receive $350,000 from a U.S. House of Representatives appropriations bill to upgrade equipment used to treat heart attack patients. The funding proposed by Rep. Adam Schiff, is included in the Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations bill, which the congressman said still has legislatives hurdles to clear. If approved the fundw would upgrade hospital’s CT scanners with state-of-the-art hardware and software, improving the center’s ability to provide timely and proper identification of the cause of chest pain. It would also provide a higher level of services through enhanced diagnostics imaging capabilities. “This funding is very important to ensuring our community has the access to the highest quality of heart care services,” said Glendale Memorial President Mark Meyers. “By diagnosing chest pain at an early stage, it can be treated more effectively and improve quality of life for the members of our community.” More than 30 percent of inpatients at the hospital are admitted for heart disease.
