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
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:
Macias, Fred Bittle, Ruth Moran and Susan Bean-Mandibles.
