Sonosite Ultrasound System for the UF Health pediatric cath lab.When you donate to CMN Hospitals to support UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital, your dollars make a big difference.

The pediatric cath lab will soon be home to a new Sonosite Ultrasound System. At $46,899.50, this necessary equipment could not be purchased without your support of CMN Hospitals.

The cath lab is maintained by the pediatric congenital heart center, where they complete routine catheterizations on many patients to check the function and anatomy of the heart.

This new ultrasound system will enable the team to locate vessels for access during these interventional procedures. Additionally, it will give a higher resolution and clearer picture quality that is needed to locate vessels in small and premature patients who undergo this testing.

Thank you for supporting an organization that funds critically needed equipment, programs and research for pediatric patients.
