Thanks to the support of more than 130 generous donors, we have completed the Imaging for Tomorrow fundraising campaign goal of $4 million to purchase the Siemens SOMATOM Drive with dual-source technology CT scanner for Sequoia Hospital.

A CT scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around the body and, using advanced computer processing, creates cross-sectional images of bones, internal blood vessels and soft tissues. At Sequoia Hospital, physicians rely on CT imaging for over 7,500 patients annually.

This fundraising campaign is an investment in the high-quality care at Sequoia Hospital. With the partnership of our hospital’s foundation and our many supporters, we will remain at the forefront of excellence. Through the utilization of this technology our care providers across multiple specialties will be able to continue to grow their practice and expertise.

Bill Graham, Sequoia Hospital President and CEO

This new equipment will help to further elevate the quality of care across Sequoia’s Heart and Vascular Institute, Precision Biopsy Program, Stroke Program, Center for Total Joint Replacement, Neurology Services, and Emergency and Trauma Services. Versatile and ahead of its time, the quality of this CT imaging will advance Sequoia's award-winning care to even greater heights.

Sequoia Hospital Foundation’s campaign, Imaging for Tomorrow, funds the purchase of the Siemens SOMATOM Drive with Dual Source technology CT Scanner coming to Sequoia Hospital in 2023.

This new CT imaging technology will elevate the quality of care across Sequoia Hospital’s:

  • Heart and Vascular Institute

  • Center for Total Joint Replacement
  • Neurology Services
  • Emergency and Trauma Services

The Impact of Philanthropy

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020, financial resources were diverted for the emergency response at Sequoia Hospital. During this time, many local individuals have stepped up to provide additional contributions to support the high-quality and world-class care available to the community. With the guidance of Jennifer Svihus, CFRE, president of the Sequoia Hospital Foundation, funds continued to be directed into the Imaging for Tomorrow campaign.

We have persevered through the COVID-19 pandemic and our community continues to show tremendous support for Sequoia Hospital. I have the privilege of working with our supporters to show their gratitude in gifts towards projects that make a difference in the care provided daily at the hospital.

Jennifer Svihus, CFRE, President, Sequoia Hospital Foundation

The $4M funding of the dual-source CT scanner was made possible with the support of more than 130 individuals, with a significant lead gift of $1M. This technology will be coming to Sequoia Hospital in 2023.
