Our generous community came together 14 years ago to fund Guelph General’s first MRI scanner.
Today, Guelph General Hospital (GGH) does up to 15,000 scans a year to diagnose and monitor injuries and illnesses: patients who need an answer to their spine or neck pain; patients who are suffering with torn muscles or ligaments; patients who are being treated and monitored in their battle against cancer; and critically ill patients within the Hospital.
It’s time to replace the current MRI scanner with a newer, more powerful one. In this short video, GGH’s Dr. Samir Patel, Radiologist and Chief of Diagnostic Imaging, and Erin Lane, Director of Diagnostic Imaging, explain how a new MRI scanner will help GGH provide even better patient care and help even more patients.
The new MRI scanner is one of the final pieces of patient care equipment to be funded as part of the Together, We Care fundraising campaign. Together, We Care will fund three major projects: expand the Hospital’s strained Emergency Department and create new space to support better mental health and addictions care, upgrade the Special Care Nursery, and invest in new patient care equipment and technology.
Already more than $14 million from Together, We Care has been invested in patient care equipment that is making a different to patients at Guelph General Hospital right now.
