PENN YAN — Representatives from Greenidge Generation gathered at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital Dec. 2 to present a check to the Finger Lakes Health Foundation for its leadership gift of $75,000 in support of a new 128-slice CT scanner.

Computed tomography (CT scan) ranks as one of the top five medical developments in the last 50 years. CT scans can help improve the accuracy and success of health care, reduce the need for exploratory surgeries, and reduce the risk of complications in surgery.

With the new CT scanner at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital made possible with a leadership donation from Greenidge Generation are: Tim Dennis, DVM, Greenidge Generation Community Advisory Committee member; Brenda Dueck, Administrative Assistant, Greenidge Generation; Gwen Chamberlain and Skip Jensen, Greenidge Generation Community Advisory Committee members.

The Phillips Incisive CT scanner – the only one in Yates County – was installed in the Radiology Department on the first floor of the hospital in September and a plaque was placed on a wall to the exam room, honoring Greenidge’s donation. Since the installation, CT scans completed locally at Soldiers & Sailors have increased by nearly 10%.

This plaque was installed in the Radiology Department at Soldiers & Sailors to recognize Greenidge's gift.
