Mobilett Mira Max portable x-ray the latest VCHS Foundation donation to hospital

ORD, Neb. – The Valley County Health System (VCHS) Foundation recently donated a new portable x-ray to VCHS with funds raised during this year’s Big Give to Valley County.                                                                                                                         

The Mobilett Mira Max portable x-ray is compact and can be easily positioned in restrictive spaces.  When it is unsafe to move a patient the x-ray machine will come to them, allowing nurses and clinicians to continue monitoring the patient.  It runs on batteries, making it always available and produces high quality images and less radiation.

“There are times when it is simply not safe to send a patient to the imaging department,” VCHS Imaging Manager Sue Diehl, CNMT, said. “This portable machine allows us to capture X-rays at important stages of assessment, potentially reducing time to diagnosis or treatment.”

Other recent VCHS Foundation donations to VCHS include a Hamilton-C2 ventilator for ER and a Game Ready machine for Rehab Services. A separate 501 (c) (3) organization, the VCHS Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of VCHS and has a vision to be the healthcare provider of choice and a symbol of strength, vitality and caring in the region VCHS serves. 

“Under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation conducts events, campaigns and programs that generate annual and monthly giving, as well as other gifts, including legacy gifts,” VCHS Foundation Executive Director  Becky Ries said. “The Foundation is very grateful to be part of such a giving community that supports VCHS and its future.”
