SSRH MRI Addition Shines New Light on Foundation’s Campaign Commitment
The Health Services Foundation of the South Shore’s Board of Directors and staff are thrilled with today’s announcement of a MRI for South Shore Regional Hospital.
The MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanner will be a part of the South Shore Regional Hospital Redevelopment Project, announced in April 2020 by the Nova Scotia government, which will include the expansion and renovation of the emergency department, endoscopy and day surgery units, physical plant and the addition of a dialysis unit.
“Access to a MRI is a service our community, and the entire South Shore, have been wanting for a long time,” said Eric Whynot, Chair of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore’s Board of Directors.
“The Health Services Foundation is very excited to see this project come to fruition through the ER Redevelopment at South Shore Regional Hospital, as it will be an integral part of our forthcoming capital campaign.”
The addition of the MRI to the SSRH Redevelopment Project brings the Health Services Foundation’s capital campaign goal to $5-million.
“The announcement of the MRI for South Shore Regional Hospital has definitely added another level of excitement as we continue to plan and prepare for what will be the Foundation’s largest campaign to date,” said Arleen Stevens, Executive Director of the Health Services Foundation.
“We are currently organizing our leadership team for our capital campaign,” Stevens adds, “and will have details to share in the months to come.”
Since 1993, the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore has raised funds to support healthcare equipment and services at South Shore Regional Hospital, Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital and associated healthcare sites.
