KIRKLAND, Wash., April 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Evergreen Healthcare Foundation raised nearly $1.1 million for Women's Health Services at Evergreen thanks to the generous support of more than 700 guests of this evening's 11th annual gala. The proceeds raised at this year's event will support the organization's commitment to provide women with breakthrough technology, education, diagnosis and quality care. The "Esplendor de Espana" gala brought together community leaders, local executives, leading physicians and friends of the hospital at King County's Marymoor Park on Saturday, April 28, with the goal of directly funding a need within Evergreen's Breast Health Center. With this year's donations the organization seeks to complement its current services offered at the medical center's Breast Health Center with the addition of advanced 3D screening and diagnostic technology onboard its mobile mammography coach. Proceeds from the 2011 Evergreen Gala funded the organization's first 3D mammography screening unit, also known as tomosynthesis, which made Evergreen the first King County medical center to provide the technology. This year, Evergreen will increase the number of women who will benefit from the unit's diagnostic advantages. "We are so grateful for the support and generosity of this community," said Evergreen Healthcare CEO Bob Malte. "The generous contributions of volunteers, physicians, donors and friends of the organization are a reflection of the character of the community that we're so proud to serve. Thanks to their on-going support, we continue to provide breakthrough clinical care and distinguished service, not only within the Breast Health Center but across our entire spectrum of clinical care." This year's gala also provided an opportunity to recognize Evergreen's 40 years of commitment to meeting the healthcare needs of the growing Eastside community, which it has served since 1972.
