Johnson Estate Donation Benefits New Service at BVRMC

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Buena Vista Regional Medical Center has recently received a generous donation from the Estate of Wilna F. Johnson. Mrs. Johnson and her late husband, Bernie, were long-time residents of Alta. Wilna was represented by her nephew, Dave Mortensen, also from Alta. This donation is designated for the purchase of equipment for the medical center's new Stereotactic Breast Biopsy service to begin in March. "We are very grateful to Mrs. Johnson for including BVRMC in her estate, and are excited to provide this new service to women in the area," says Joan Kurtz, Director of Radiology at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center. The Johnsons will be recognized as BVRMC "Circle of Life" members because of this gift.
