Imaging Campaign

Diagnostic devices are critical to providing urgent, emergent and seriously ill patients the best care available on Kauai. Wilcox Health Foundation is raising funds to upgrade equipment to ensure Wilcox Medical Center maintains the highest level of care and to establish a diagnostic center of excellence so Kauai patients can remain home.

Wilcox plans to:

  • Replace a Computed Tomography or CT scanner for emergency injury and stroke diagnosis. More than 11,000 CT scans are performed at Wilcox every year.
  • Upgrade the only full Magnetic Resonance Imaging, known as MRI, available on the island to further improve speed and accuracy of imaging.
  • Upgrade the nuclear medicine camera so patients can stay on Kauai during specialty studies.
