Portland, OR. Legacy Mount Hood is expanding its cardiology services, including the construction of two cardiac catheterization suites for emergency care. To complement these new services, Mount Hood Medical Center Foundation has begun a three-year, $600,000 campaign to fund the expansion of the cardiac education and rehabilitation programs.

The “Denim & Diamonds Online Auction” raised $45k for the Cardiac program at its annual auction.

This year’s event included a raffle, auction and paddle-raise, all held online. Bidding concluded in early September.

“We are so fortunate to have such generous donors, especially in difficult times like these,” said J. Michael Schultz, executive director of Mount Hood Medical Center Foundation. “Their commitment to our mission is inspiring.”

Money from the Denim & Diamonds auction will support community education, nutrition counseling, new exercise equipment, and financial aid for patients with limited resources.
