You Magnified Our Scope of Care: MRI Milestone

SMGHF-Slide-Border-Bottom
Together, we secured a first for St. Mary’s: an MRI machine that offers patients the gold standard in diagnostic imaging.
Construction on the MRI will begin soon and the project is expected to be ready to take on patients by March 2024.

St. Mary’s was the only cardiac centre in the province without MRI capabilities – until now. Having an MRI on site is a game-changer for our community:
  • reduces wait times
  • provides swift diagnosis
  • eliminates patient travel
  • increases diagnostic capacity throughout region

“Having MRI onsite at St. Mary's and an additional MRI machine at Grand River will allow for more equitable access for inpatients and outpatients at both hospitals. It will also reduce the strain on existing diagnostic modalities across the region."

Delivering on Diagnostics: The Turning Point in Care

SMGHF-Slide-Border-Bottom
Each and every donor dollar makes a difference at St. Mary’s. We’re able to offer the innovative, quality care our community deserves – thanks to you.
As we commemorate the milestones we’ve reached together, we’re also looking to a new chapter in care: upgrading our diagnostic imaging equipment. St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation is focusing the bulk of its funding efforts on diagnostics over the next few years.
A diagnosis is the first step in a patient’s healthcare journey, allowing physicians to draft treatment plans to tailor their needs. Let’s work together to fund priority equipment for our community and get patients started on treatment earlier.
