announce availability of bone density testing at
Kishwaukee Community Hospital.

Patients at Kishwaukee Community Hospital are benefiting every day from the generous support of community donors through the Kishwaukee Health Foundation. Most recently, the Diagnostic Imaging department at Kish Hospitalreceived a state-of-the-art bone densitometry system as a direct result of the generosity of local individuals and families who have given to the Health Foundation.

The purchase was made possible from donations to Kishwaukee Health Foundation’s Friends for Life KCH100 Fund. Funds were utilized to purchase the Lunar Prodigy Advance Bone Densitometer from GE Healthcare in order to help physicians improve patient outcomes in the fight against osteoporosis. The new DXA (Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scanner was recently installed and patient appointments are now being scheduled.
