Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation

Support the CT Replacement Campaign Today

SYVCH Foundation launched a new campaign to raise $550,000 for a state-of-the-art CT scanner at Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital. The new CT (computerized tomography) scanner will advance the hospital’s capability to more quickly diagnose disease and injury, plan medical treatment and provide improved image quality with lower doses of radiation.

Nathan Hall, SYVCH Radiology Manager

“CT Replacement is a top hospital priority. Last year, 3,768 CT scans were performed at SYVCH. CT is an important piece of diagnostic equipment essential to providing quality of care. The new CT will support life-saving treatment and is especially vital for patients who come to our certified Stroke-Ready Hospital. We are truly grateful for the community’s support.”

The Elaine F. Stepanek Foundation kicked off the CT Replacement Campaign with a generous donation of $50,000. We are most grateful to the foundation for this important leadership gift.

The updated equipment will replace an older model that is nearing the end of its life span.

Please join the foundation by making a donation today. Your gift directly supports the highest level of care to our community, and will help save lives! Thank you for your support.
