A third CT scanner for Willmar


WILLMAR -- First Willmar had one CT scanner. Then there were two. Now there are three.

Willmar CDI is the latest local health care entity, after Rice Memorial Hospital and Affiliated Community Medical Centers, to acquire a CT scanner, plus ultrasound, digital mammography, bone density scanning and interventional radiology.
