Hospital Foundation Celebrates 29th Anniversary


n 1990, the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation organized itself as a nonprofit with a

mission to help LVMC develop new healthcare services and facilities and to share in-

formation about healthcare

news to local residents.

In late November at its annu-

al meeting, the Foundation cel-

ebrated its 29th anniversary by

making a significant donation

to the hospital and by electing

new trustees.

Foundation President Alice

Milligan and her board presented a donation of $100,000 to

LVMC toward the purchase a mobile fluoroscopic X-ray imag-

ing device nicknamed “C-Arm.” The medical imaging device

provides high-resolution X-ray images in real time, allowing a

surgeon to monitor and immediately make corrections if nec-

essary. During the meeting, a slate of Foundation officers was

elected. The officers are:


Alice Milligan.

Vice Presi-


Jim Raggio.


Gary Williams.
