Toshiba American Medical Systems and the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) recently chose three hospitals as the first winners of its Patient First Grant Program, which helps to fund programs that improve patient care and safety in diagnostic imaging.
St. Mary's Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine; Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.; and Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa will receive $7,500 for programs, training or seminars. They recipients will also publish an article in an AHRA publication about their systems and create a best practices tool for other hospitals.
“We were impressed with the quality of entries for the Patient First Grant Program demonstrating the dedication these hospitals have to providing the highest level of patient care and safety in their communities,” says Cathy Wolfe, director of marketing services for Toshiba. “Toshiba is committed to developing patient-friendly products that improve care and outcomes, and funding programs that inspire innovation in the area of patient care demonstrates that commitment.”
The winners were picked by the AHRA selection committee and develop best practices in the areas of CAT Scans, MRIs, ultrasounds and X-rays.
