NYC Councilman James Vacca To Cut Ribbon on New MRI Equipment at Einstein Hospital

Councilman James Vacca helped secure a $2 million grant which was used to secure a highly advanced MRI machine for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. For those that don't know, The Bronx is home to some of the finest medical institutions in the nation. Kudos to Vacca for his efforts to keep our health institutions on the cutting edge of technology. Let's hope affordable insurance options prevail, allowing Bronx residents to continue using the excellent services provided by our hospitals. The ribbon cutting ceremony is tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning, Council Member James Vacca will join officials at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the installation of a highly advanced MRI machine at the Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center. Council Member Vacca allocated $2 million in City Council capital funds that helped Einstein purchase the new equipment, which will augment the research capabilities of the College of Medicine and enhance its efforts to develop improved understanding of a variety of diseases and disorders.
