Ultrasound equipment blessing

Published August 30, 2019

Bishop Anthony B. Taylor and pastor Father Eddie D’Almeida of Holy Redeemer Church in El Dorado blessed new ultrasound equipment at the Hannah Pregnancy Resource Center Aug. 18.

Hannah PRC recently received two new ultrasound machines, a GE Voulson S8 and an Esaote MyLab Gamma. The Esaote machine is portable and will be used in the center’s satellite offices in Camden and Magnolia. It was donated by the Psalm 139 Project.

Half of the cost of the $40,000 Voulson ultrasound machine was raised from donations from the local Knights of Columbus council. The other half came from the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. St. Louis Church in Camden also helped raise funds for the machine.

Each year, Hannah PRC provides about 150 ultrasounds, the El Dorado News reported.
