Prairie Meadows grant helps purchase new Radiology van


May 30, 2018

Skiff Medical Center’s Radiology department recently upgraded its mobile radiology van, thanks to funding received from a Prairie Meadows Community Betterment grant. Skiff’s mobile radiology program utilizes a minivan to transport X-ray equipment to serve patients in the community at nursing homes, senior living centers and at the Newton Correctional Facility.

This is an important service provided to patients who many who may be too weak to leave their home or may not have transportation to the hospital to have simple radiological procedures or follow-up exams. With mobile radiology equipment, Skiff is able to bring the equipment to them, providing the patient with added convenience and safety. 

“Our previous minivan we used for our mobile radiology services was more than 20 years old and in need of replacement,” said Jane Hettinger, Skiff Radiology Manager.  “Skiff is incredibly grateful for Prairie Meadows contribution to purchase the minivan which ensures we can continue offering these important services to the community.”
