Foundation asks for support of new technology

Dear friends and neighbors,

We’re asking for your support to help bring new technology to Lancaster!

As part of our commitment to enhancing care in our region, Grant Regional would like to bring the latest innovation of stereotactic breast biopsies to our patients in Grant County. With this state of art equipment, it would allow us to streamline services so waiting times could be diminished and women could receive the information they need to make informed decisions about their care quicker than ever before. 

Enhanced Care for Early Detection

The benefits to having this technology in Lancaster are many. It means quicker answers, less travel, and fewer rereads. Cancer can be caught earlier and patients often require less treatment; and therefore, experience fewer side-effects. 

Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy Procedures

Crucial to the diagnosis of breast cancer, these procedures are less painful than surgery and virtually eliminate scarring so patients can resume daily activities more quickly. Stereotactic breast biopsy is used to determine if a lump or abnormality is benign or cancerous. Stereotactic breast biopsy uses mammography – a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays — to help locate a breast abnormality and remove a tissue sample for examination. 

Beyond Diagnostics - a Commitment to Saving Lives

We are fortunate to have the expertise of our own General Surgeon Dr. Adam Schope who specializes in breast health. In addition to his experience in laparoscopic surgery and varicose vein treatment, he also has advanced training to perform many breast procedures including mastectomies, lumpectomies, and stereotactic breast biopsies. When receiving news of an abnormal mammogram, patients want conclusive results and a diagnosis without waiting or traveling a great distance. Together, we can make this a reality.

Join us in expanding our services and creating a better experience for those who need it most. No one wants to face the harsh reality of a cancer diagnosis, let alone wait days to know for sure. Help us give peace of mind to our patients by assisting in the purchase of stereotactic breast biopsy equipment.

Thank you for your support and contribution to advancing healthcare in our region.
