THE MASONIC Homes of Valencia Association visited Hospital de Denia-MarinaSalud to present Angel Gimenez – Hospital Director, Juan Manuel Gasent – Head of Oncology, Mayte Lopez – Hospital Liason with a cheque for an outstanding €100,000.
The funds raised will be put towards the purchase of a second CT scanner which has been sorely needed by the hospital for some time. Currently when the older machine is in use or in need of repair, or even being serviced, patients often need to travel long distances for diagnosis before treatment can begin
The hospital itself managed to raise €100,000 towards the cost of the CT scanner, but such machines do not come cheap.
The scanner is now on order from the United States and should arrive, ready for use in early August.
More than fifty people attended the presentation including representatives of the hospital, members of the Board of the Masonic Homes, volunteers who run the charity shop and many hospital workers.
