MOSCOW, Idaho— M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, Washington, recently awarded Gritman Medical Center $225,000 for new diagnostic and intervention equipment.  
“We are honored the Murdock Charitable Trust recognized the significance of new diagnostic equipment and how it will enrich and strengthen health care services to patients in our area,” said Kara Besst, President and CEO of Gritman Medical Center. “We share the Trust’s goal of enhancing quality of life in our region.”
The grant will fund the purchase of the latest 3D breast biopsy guidance unit and three state-of-the-art ultrasound units. The innovative breast biopsy guidance unit localizes and targets regions of interest with precision and accuracy.

The new equipment will be available this summer.
