Cardiovascular Institute Donates Ultrasound Machines to Gulf Coast State College

Gulf Coast State College received a donation of two ultrasound machines from the Cardiovascular Institute of Northwest Florida to be used for their Sonography Program. The addition of these two ultrasound machines will provide our students with an expanded learning opportunity to perform echocardiography. The College is grateful for our community partners that provide donations in support of our programs to enhance student learning.

“Dr. Amir Haghighat, CEO of Cardiovascular Institute of NWFL, has generously donated two Acuson Sequoia C512 Ultrasound Machines. This addition will enable the students to perform Echo, Vascular, and Abdominal studies, allowing students more hands-on experience. The Sonography Program of Gulf Coast State College is deeply grateful for their support and generosity” stated Vicki Bynum, GCSC Assistant Coordinator, Sonography Program.  

“Sonography is an essential diagnostic tool in our cardiovascular practice” said Dr. Haghighat, “and more than half of our talented team has graduated from Gulf Coast’s program.  As we upgraded our equipment at Cardiovascular Institute, the opportunity to provide these machines to a program that has provided the community such highly skilled sonographers is truly a win-win.”
