Chatham-Kent Proves Once Again It Is a Caring Giving Community
As I keep up with what is happening in our community, I am very proud of who we are and what we continually do as a community. The latest accomplishment is the Diagnostic ImagingCampaign which has recently exceeded their goal of $6.9 Million having reached a whopping $7,062.761 Million. Thanks to the efforts of the committee and many giving individuals, 14 new state of the art pieces of equipment including a new CT Scan and a Spec Ct Scan along with 15 other important pieces will be available at the Chatham and Wallaceburg Hospital Sites. Three of the co-chairs of the campaign have had first hand experiences with the importance of early diagnosis with the right equipment. We often do not understand the difference early diagnosis can makes until we personally or a close friend or relative is in need. Thankfully the people of Chatham-Kent came through again and opened their hearts and their wallets to this great need in our community.
15 of the 17 new pieces of Diagnostic Imaging Equipment have already been installed and are in use. The last two will be ready for use by the end of June. Lori Marshall, President and CEO of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance says that they do about 100,000 scans of different types, including Xrays all the way up to MRI's each year. This is a growth of 10 % over the last two years. This investment in our Hospitals is also a major plus in the recruitment of Medical Professionals to our Community.
