Valley County Health System Foundation Donates $575,000 for MRI

The Valley County Health System Foundation (VCHSF) ran a campaign from March 2021- March 2023, to raise funds to help Valley County Health System (VCHS) with the purchase of a new Magnetom Altea MRI. The total cost of a new MRI is over $1.5 million. The new MRI has a larger opening, and many of the scans are shorter when compared to the prior MRI we had.  The new machine will eventually have a way for us to stream in videos for patients to watch when they are getting certain exams done. Shorter exams and the potential for live streaming will give our patients a more comfortable experience.

The VCHSF was pleased to present VCHS with $575,000 toward the MRI purchase. This was made possible by a personal donation from Dale and Janie Zadina, contributions from the VCHS Employees, as well as funds raised during the 2021 and 2022 Golf Tournaments, 2023 Gala and Gifts of Grain from local farmers.

“Valley County Health System is extremely grateful for the generous contributions made by the Foundation,” VCHS CEO Nancy Glaubke, says. “This new MRI will enable VCHS to continue providing advanced technology and services in a modern yet comfortable atmosphere.”

The Foundation’s mission is to seek, receive and administer donations and gifts for the sole benefit of Valley County Health System. Our number one priority is enhancing and sustaining high-quality healthcare in Central Nebraska.

“This two-year campaign was an incredible show of how our community pulls together to support one another,” VCHSF Executive Director Elizabeth Todsen Clark, says. “We are incredibly lucky to have donors who support Valley County Health System and the continuation of rural health care. We can’t thank everybody enough for their support!”

Through your donations, we are able to fulfill our mission and make an impact on healthcare in our region.
