Volunteer Auxilary Donates New Scope to Radiation Oncology
The Lake Charles Memorial Hospital (LCMH) Volunteer Auxiliary and Foundation recently donated a new Olympus® Airway Mobilescope to the hospital’s radiation oncology department.
The mobilescope has an LED light, display screen and still image and digital recording capabilities. It will be used to evaluate the extent of lesions in the mouth, nodes and throat. The scope will also be used to monitor patient progress with radiation treatments.
The LCMH Volunteer Auxiliary has donated more than $1.77 million to the hospital and $41,000 to the Aileen and Hazel Dyer Scholarship Fund for McNeese State University students.
The Volunteer Auxiliary is open to anyone age 18 and over of all backgrounds and abilities. For more information, contact Volunteer Services at 337-494-3213 or www.lcmh.com/volunteer.
