Pullman Regional Hospital has received a grant from the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust to help fund new cardiology equipment. The grant award, $250,000 in funding, complements the donations made by the community and the Schweitzer family as part of Pullman Regional Hospital’s 2018 Highest Needs fundraising, which supports the expansion of cardiology services.

“We are very grateful for a fourth grant award from Murdock Charitable Trust and the opportunity to build a strong partnership with one of the largest foundations in the country,” said Scott Adams, Chief Executive Officer at Pullman Regional Hospital.

The expansion of cardiology services includes supporting Dennis Simpson, MD and Cardiologist David Jones, MD—a new member of Pullman’s medical family. Funds also support medical equipment such as an upgraded patient monitoring system, cardiac treadmills, cardiac specific ultrasound machines and transesophageal echocardiography probe, and EKG machines.
