Virginia Knights donate state's first ultrasound machine to Tepayac Clinic in Fairfax
On June 21, 2010, with all the State Officers present, as well as Pat Korten, Vice President for Communications for the Supreme Council, and a gathering of friends and supporters, then State Deputy Pat O’Donnell presented a final check which completed the purchase of a new Medison SonoAce X8 ultrasound machine for the Tepeyac Family Center in Fairfax, Virginia. The ultrasound machine will enable doctors to show high-resolution 3-D/4-D images of unborn children to expectant mothers.
The Tepeyac Family Center is a non-profit, pro-life Ob-Gyn clinic with six doctors, and serves more than 13 crisis pregnancy centers throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. A program of Divine Mercy Care, the Center is the only full-time Catholic health facility in the Diocese of Arlington. Last year it provided more than $352,000 in charitable healthcare, and delivered approximately 700 babies, including 216 babies to mothers in financial distress. Tepeyac enjoys a committed patient, volunteer and donor base because of its ethical and moral care for pregnant mothers and their unborn babies, both the insured and uninsured.
