Priceless Pictures Campaign

Improving lives, one project at a time.
Our Current Campaign

The Prowers Medical Center Foundation is working hand-in-hand with the medical center, on efforts to build a new imaging center with better space and upgraded equipment. As part of that campaign, the Foundation has committed to raising $1.6 million for an MRI scanner with vital upgrades and advanced capabilities. The campaign will span two years from 2019 to 2021.

Why Consider Giving

Imagine your child starts complaining of unusual headaches or your friend’s doctor suspects she has suffered a mini-stroke. Or maybe your spouse has severe back pain that keeps him from doing the things he enjoys.

Now, imagine that you have to wait for an appointment to access an MRI machine that doesn’t have the latest technology, one that’s housed in a trailer in the parking lot with limited access. It’s adequate, but it doesn’t have the upgrades for specialized views of the brain to fully diagnose your child’s headaches or your friend’s stroke, or upgrades to give precise details on your husband’s orthopedic disorders.

To boot, your loved one may have to wait for an appointment, receive unnecessary exploratory surgery due to less precise imaging, live with the consequences of a missed tumor or lesion due to less than the very best scans, or drive 100s of miles to access the latest technology.

It doesn’t have to be like this.

With your help, we can bring the very latest in MRI technology to Lamar, with precision that allows physicians to pinpoint even the smallest abnormalities, empowering doctors to identify conditions early and save lives.

We would appreciate the chance to sit down and talk with you about how your gift could help us reach our campaign goal of $1.6 million over the next two years.

A picture is worth a thousand words; an image to diagnose and treat illness is priceless.

About the Prowers Medical Center Foundation

Safeguarding our community hospital’s future

The Foundation formed in 2011 as a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) to support Prowers Medical Center’s efforts to continually advance the well-being of our community by providing quality healthcare and health-related services.

By bringing generous donors together, the Foundation is able to bring advanced technologies, equipment and programming to the hospital where it’s most needed. These efforts enhance care for the entire community, and bring improvements that would otherwise be unattainable under current budget limitations.

Your gift is a tangible act of support to provide quality healthcare to all residents of Southeast Colorado.

Each year, the Foundation hosts a fundraising celebration event in May, funds ongoing programs, pursues grants and launches campaigns as needed to purchase special equipment and support needed programs.
