North Valley Hospital receives $150k to update mammogram technology

Whitefish, Mont.-based North Valley Hospital received a $150,000 donation from a local family to help update the hospital's breast screening technology, according to the Daily Interlake.

The donation from the Broussard family supports the hospital's $500,000 goal to purchase a 3D mammography machine to improve accuracy of the screenings.

"We would like to recognize the Broussard family for their continued leadership and generosity in providing philanthropic support to health related projects in the Flathead Valley," Alan Satterlee, executive director of North Valley Hospital Foundation, said in a statement, according to the Daily Interlake.

The hospital expects to have the new equipment by the end of the year.
