Helmsley grant to Lead-Deadwood Hospital will improve X-ray technology

DEADWOOD, S.D. – Patients at Regional Health Lead-Deadwood Hospital will soon benefit from the latest in X-ray technology, made possible through a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust’s Rural Healthcare Program. The Trust awarded Regional Health Lead-Deadwood Hospital $132,213 for a Carestream Revolution Mobile X-Ray System, part of a $14.2 million initiative to upgrade x-ray technology at 50 rural hospitals in the Upper Midwest.

“We are very pleased to partner with the Helmsley Charitable Trust in providing the highest quality imaging services available,” said Mark Schmidt, Lead-Deadwood Hospital Market President. “Helmsley is well known for their generous support of rural hospitals, and we are truly grateful for their support in this project. It will have a very positive impact in the lives and overall health of the patients we serve.”

Walter Panzirer, a Trustee for the Helmsley Charitable Trust, said the initiative represents the organization’s latest multi-site initiative to improve the quality of health care available to rural residents in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wyoming.

“Our goal has always been to improve access to exceptional medical treatment for those who live in rural America,” said Panzirer. “To that end, rural hospitals need to remain viable and have the latest equipment to ensure their patients can receive essential, quality healthcare services locally. This initiative is just one of many that strives to improve healthcare outcomes throughout the Upper Midwest.”

Over the last four years, the Helmsley Charitable Trust’s Rural Healthcare Program has awarded more than $30 million in grants to 82 hospitals in the Upper Midwest to purchase state-of-the-art computer tomography (CT) scanners.
