Pleasant Valley Hospital in Mason County has received a huge boost with a $500,000 donation for a new children and family diagnostic center.

The gift from the Gordon C. and Mildred R. Jackson Foundation was announced Wednesday at a news conference at the Point Pleasant Hospital.

Children and families will be able to go to the diagnostic center for such testing as CTC scans, MRIs and three-D mammograms. Officials said this will allow families to have the testing right here in the region rather than traveling to other locations such as Columbus, Ohio.

The new diagnostic center will be located at Pleasant Valley Hospital.

The Pleasant Valley Hospital Foundation said in a news release that the donation is the first gift in its $3.25 million capital campaign that will ensure the establishment of the diagnostic center at the hospital.

Through a partnership with the Mason County Community Foundation, the hospital has launched its capital campaign to provide cutting edge diagnostic services to Mason, Meigs, Gallia, Jackson and Putnam counties.

Officials said the new center will be named The Gordon and Mildred Jackson Foundation Children and Family Diagnostic Center.

Construction should begin in the next couple of months.
