Arlene and Harold Sukonik (in photo, front row) recently made a $30,000 gift to help launch the Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) program at Lankenau Medical Center. With its highly advanced technology, POCUS (at the patient’s bedside) has become increasingly integral to diagnosing and caring for inpatients and outpatients.
The Sukonik’s generous donation will help Lankenau’s medical educators train internal medicine residents and others in the use of bedside ultrasound.
Key LMC physicians involved in the POCUS program include, in photo (front row) Lawrence L. Livornese, Jr., MD, The Dorrance H. Hamilton Chair in Medicine and MLH Chairman of the Department of Medicine, and (back row) William Surkis, MD, LMC Internal Medicine Program Director; Krista Isaac, DO, Third-Year LMC Internal Medicine Resident; Catherine Kuntz, MD, Associate Program Director, LMC Internal Medicine Residency Program; Elizabeth Richardson, DO, The Michael A. Manko, MD, Senior Resident in Internal Medicine.
