DGH's first MRI is now fully funded!
The Dartmouth General Hospital Foundation is pleased to share that the first-ever MRI unit at Dartmouth General is now fully funded! We can’t thank the donors enough for supporting this much-needed piece of equipment.
THE BENEFITS OF A NEW MRI INCLUDE:
• Quicker access to an MRI appointment for patients across the province
• MRI will include an orthopedic upgrade to enhance the care
in the Fred Smithers Centre for Orthopedic Care
• Decreased need to transport patients to the Halifax Infirmary
• Shorter time in starting treatment, lowering the risks of the
injuries becoming chronic and untreatable
This contribution will be matched by the Provinces $3.9 million donation, covering the cost of construction and operation. Click here to read the Province of Nova Scotia’s announcement.
This is another great example of the Government of Nova Scotia partnering with hospital foundations like ours to help change the lives of patients in HRM and beyond.
Construction has begun on the new MRI Space, and we are going to update you every step of the way! Stay tuned.
