Hospital Plans New Women’s Health Center

Womens-Center
In December of 2014, the Colusa Regional Medical Center Foundation announced plans to purchase a new digital mammography system in partnership with the hospitals new Women’s Health Center set to be completed later this year.

“The women’s health center will provide our community with the specialized services they need, all under one roof, without having to leave the county,” said Walt Beck, CEO of Colusa Regional Medical Center.

The CRMC Women’s Health Center will feature a new digital mammography imaging service, which will provide the highest level of diagnostic breast services for Colusa County.

“We currently use a traditional x-ray film mammography machine, and though still functional, it doesn’t meet the needs of today’s technology,” said Beck, “that is when the foundation stepped forward to help assist with fundraising for its replacement.”

At a cost of $225,000, the CRMC Foundation kicked off its fundraising campaign “When image is everything” to coincide with the national breast cancer awareness month.

“Since we started the campaign, we have raised about $53,000,” said D’Ann Bressler, CRMC Foundation Board Member, “and we still have a long way to go.”

With just over 23% of the goal met, the CRMC Foundation is partnering with the community to raise funds to help Colusa Regional Medical Center remain at the forefront of medical and technological advances while ensuring the highest level of diagnostic breast services for Colusa County.

“The Women’s Health Center is one of those investments that makes a difference for everyone in Colusa County,” said Beck.

In addition to digital mammography services, the Women’s Health Center will provide access to women’s health exams, obstetrics, gynecologic services, family planning, lab services, and more.

Beck added that the hospital will continue to add services to its Women’s Health Center as services are needed.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dr. Chun received her undergraduate education at UC Berkley in 1983 and received her graduate education at UCLA, Mater of Public Health in 1986. She received her medical education a UCLA, Geffen School of Medicine in 1996 where she completed her internship and residency at UC Irvine Medical Center in 2000. Dr. Chun is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.

“It is exciting to play a part in starting the first full scope obstetrics and gynecology practice in Colusa County,” said Dr. Chun, “Our goal is to be able to offer the women of the community up-to-date diagnosis and treatment locally.”

Dr. Chun is currently accepting patients. To schedule an appointment, call (530) 458-5003.

Once completed, the CRMC Women’s Health Center is located at 2967 Davison Court, Suite A in Colusa.

“Renovations have begun and the new equipment will soon be purchased and installed,” said Beck, “We invite everyone to watch for the Community Open House of the New Women’s Health Center in the near future.”

How to contribute to the Purchase of the new Digital Mammography Machine

The CRMC Foundation is currently accepting cash gifts of any size.

“No donation is too small,” said Bressler, “It was the small donations that helped save this hospital back in 2000, so every penny counts.”

Donations can also be made in the memory of a loved one, or in honor or tribute of a family or individual.

“We have lots of options for donations,” said Bressler, “if anyone has any questions, he or she can contact us.”

Donation forms are available at Colusa Regional Medical Center or by calling (530) 458-5821 ext. 261.
