EAST ALTON — Dr. Andrew Dykeman, chiropractic physician at Rosewood Chiropractic Clinic, donated his X-ray unit to the Aklan Baptist Hospital in the Philippines.
Previously, the hospital was using a World War II Army surplus machine.
“Due to the rising cost of equipment maintenance and decreasing insurance reimbursements, I now refer out all of my imaging,” Dykeman said. “Why not donate my X-ray to someone who can use and truly appreciate it?”
Dykeman is contacting state associations and other doctors’ organizations to inform and educate them on donation options.
For information, contact Dykeman at (618) 259-2676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
