Laguna Beach residents Sue and Bill Gross visited Mission Hospital Laguna Beach last week to get their first glimpse at the transformation their $10 million gift is making in the hospital’s emergency department.
Last fall, the Grosses donated money to enhance and expand emergency services and invest in superior imaging technology. “Sue has a passion for our Laguna Beach community and a special interest in health care, particularly programs that support emergency services,” Bill Gross said at a private reception at the hospital, according to a statement. “We have been blessed with good fortune and we are delighted to share our resources with Mission Hospital Laguna Beach,” he added.
Among the new pieces of technology are a state-of-the-art open magnet MRI, portable x-ray machine and portable C-Arm imaging device. “The need for advanced imaging technology is critical in caring for emergency medicine patients,’’ said Dr. Michael Ritter, the hospital’s emergency services director.
