Auxiliary Pleges $125,000 for Cardiac Equipment

The Sentara Potomac Hospital Auxiliary has pledged $125,000 to purchase new portable Intravenous Ultrasound and Fractional Flow Reserve imaging equipment for the Sentara Heart and Vascular Center at Potomac Hospital. The new center, located on the hospital campus, opens in late May and will offer new heart and vascular services including interventional cardiac catheterization.

The equipment will provide physicians the technology to more comprehensively assess and treat patients with cardiac disease.

"We're thrilled to make this pledge," says Steve Argubright, Auxiliary president. "We are happy that we're able to contribute needed equipment that will help bring quality cardiac care to the local community."

The Sentara Potomac Hospital Auxiliary is made up of more than 150 community volunteers who provide an invaluable service to the hospital. In addition to operating the hospital Gift Shop, the volunteers also give freely of their time and talents by coordinating fundraising activities to benefit the hospital.
