2016 Circle Funding Focus
2016 membership gifts will be directed to purchase new state-of-the-art imaging systems, Siemens SOMATOM Force CT Scanners.
This new technology offers clearer, more precise imaging and diagnoses, and provides full-body imaging in less than five seconds. This means quicker scans, faster diagnoses and reduced treatment wait-times for our patients. The earlier the diagnosis, the sooner treatment can begin, which in many cases, can be lifesaving for patients affected by stroke, heart disease, cancer, internal bleeding, brain injuries and other serious conditions.
Please take a moment to watch the video below, which highlights the lifesaving benefits of the CT scanners.
Circle Member Gatherings
On October 27, 2016, Circle of Excellence members and guests enjoyed a behind-the-scenes look at our Critical Care Center at PIH Health Hospital – Whittier. Daniel Akhavan MD, Chairman, Department of Medicine and President, Intensivist Group, provided attendees with an inside look at the work of intensivists. He also highlighted the highly specialized interdisciplinary teams, which provide critical care to our patients 24/7. Dr. Akhavan also introduced grateful patient Jason Miller and his wife Brooke who shared Jason’s miraculous story of recovery – highlighting the great care and support that they received from their entire care team.
