Portland, OR. Mount Hood Medical Center raised nearly $40,000 at its annual Denim & Diamonds event to support the expansion of the cardiac services at the hospital. This year’s event included an online auction and virtual livestream program on May 7th. Legacy Mount Hood is expanding its cardiology services, including the construction of two cardiac catheterization suites for emergency care. To complement these new services, they have nearly completed a three-year, $600,000 campaign to fund the expansion of their cardiac education and rehabilitation programs available to the community.
