Brooke Radiology Associates recently made a $25,000 donation towards a new CT scanner at Delta Hospital.
This gift brings Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation that much closer to the $1.7 million fundraising goal for a new CT scanner.
The CT scanner is a vital diagnostic tool that runs 24 hours, seven days a week at Delta Hospital. It supports the ER by providing prompt emergency and trauma exams, as well as running scheduled scans for help diagnosing or ruling out many medical conditions and diseases.
“We’ve had the current CT scanner since 2009. Last year, it was used in more than 7,000 cases alone. It is critical to have a new machine with more advanced technology that will give us another decade of service and provide us with even better imaging,” said Dr. John Bining of Brooke Radiology Associates and department head of medical imaging at Delta Hospital.
Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation executive director Lisa Hoglund said the foundation is honoured by the gift.
“As Dr. Bining sees first-hand the importance of having the latest technology in medical imaging. To support a new CT scanner at Delta Hospital with such a generous gift is truly inspiring and we are very grateful,” she said.
