Golf tournament to benefit Redwood Memorial Hospital

09/13/2013

Fortuna (September 13, 2013) – Golfers will get into the swing of things for the sake of quality health care in the Eel River Valley at the fourth annual Scramble for Redwood Memorial Hospital on Friday, Oct. 4, 2013. Hosted by the Redwood Memorial Foundation, this unique and fun golf tournament is a benefit for Redwood Memorial Hospital.

Golf players of all levels are challenged by 18-hole course at Redwood Empire Golf & Country Club and are encouraged to participate in a variety of contests, including long drive, closest to the pin and duck pitch competitions, with prizes for all winners.

Proceeds from the Scramble will benefit imaging services at Redwood Memorial Hospital Hospital, specifically funding the renovation of the existing radiology room and the purchase of state-of-the-art digital X-ray equipment.

Digital radiology systems offer high-contrast image details to enable care providers to more clearly view and manipulate images. This state-of-the-art technology includes a wireless detector which electronically transmits the digital images straight to the computer, meaning the images are immediately accessible and more easily transmitted to other providers. Additionally, the project also includes new mobile capabilities, making it possible for patients who are bed-bound to receive digital X-ray exams and for those exams to be evaluated immediately by a physician.

"Enhancing digital X-ray capabilities at Redwood Memorial Hospital means we are able to provide better care more efficiently for our patients," said Dom Previte, director of Diagnostic Imaging at Redwood Memorial Hospital.

The gold sponsor of the Scramble for Redwood Memorial Hospital is PG&E. Silver sponsors include: CA Bio-Pharma Labor Management Association, Landmark Realty, The McLean Foundation, Ralph A. Roberts, DDS, Sonoma Imaging and Sunshine Lands, LLC.

Sponsorship opportunities and slots for teams are still available. For more information about sponsoring the tournament or to reserve spaces for a team of golfers, call 707-725-

7270 or go online to the Redwood Memorial Hospital Foundation's "special events" page at www.redwoodmemorial.org.
