The Champlin Foundations Award RI Hospital With $850K Grant

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

 

Rhode Island Hospital has been awarded a grant of $850,000 by the Champlin Foundations to support the purchase of vascular interventional radiology equipment to be installed in the hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Suite. The new imaging system will increase the hospital’s capacity to provide the full spectrum of vascular and interventional imaging applications, including many neuroradiology procedures that are vital to the work of The Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute at Rhode Island Hospital.

“We are grateful to The Champlin Foundations for their continuing partnership with Rhode Island Hospital,” said Timothy J. Babineau, M.D., president of Rhode Island Hospital, and president and chief executive officer of Lifespan. “The new interventional imaging system will increase Rhode Island Hospital’s capacity to provide timely and effective diagnosis and treatment for those in need of highly specialized procedures.”

Interventional radiology procedures use minimally invasive techniques combined with diagnostic imaging technology to identify and treat conditions that would have required invasive surgery; conditions including acute stroke, cerebral aneurysms, neurological-related trauma and emergencies, vascular malformations, and tumors of the head, brain, neck and spine. These interventional methods can save lives, lower the risk of patient complications, shorten hospital stays and promote faster patient recovery.

“We are proud of our partnership with Rhode Island Hospital and honored to help provide the clinical staff with imaging technology,” said Keith Lang, executive director of The Champlin Foundations.
