Current Needs

South Georgian Bay needs a faster, more advanced scanner that will help reduce wait times & ensure quality care close to home.

CGMH currently relies heavily on the CT scanner as the best available diagnostic option for things like cancer, heart disease, internal bleeding, bone, and joint problems, and so much more. Helping diagnose over 16,000 patients annually, the current CT scanner has reached the end of its useful lifespan. 

To bring the best possible CT technology to South Georgian Bay, we have launched a $2.15 million campaign to purchase a new CT scanner. At CGMH, we take pride in providing fast, accurate diagnoses on which to base the most effective treatment plans. Our Radiologists rely on sophisticated technology to precisely diagnose every patient. Unfortunately, sophisticated technology has a lifespan – a time when it can no longer be maintained or a time when technological advances make it obsolete. The time has come to replace CGMH’s 11-year-old CT scanner.

The images produced from the CT and MRI scanners could be the pictures that save your life, or the life of your loved ones. Please consider how you might help equip the Diagnostic Imaging Department at CGMH with state-of-the-art technology that will help reduce wait times and ensure quality care close to home.
