The Blue Mountain Healthcare Foundation raised $10,000 this year at its 14th annual golf scramble to buy a three-dimensional mammography machine for the hospital.

Jena Knowles, the hospital’s public relations director, is finalizing the purchase of the 3D mammography unit along with implementation details. She said the goal is to have the machine in place for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

She said the 3D technology takes much better images, and can detect breast cancer sooner.
