The Fort St. John hospital’s CT Scanner campaign is now complete after a 50 thousand dollar donation by CN.
CN’s donation will be used to purchase training equipment that will help the staff in Diagnostic Imaging to increase their skills and knowledge of computed tomography.
Since Fort St. John is a northern, rural community, technicians do not have access to updated CT training. So, the money will help them brush up on new skills begin to build capacity within the rest of the diagnostic imaging department.
CN’s General Manager for the Mountain Region Rich Miller says the company is committed to helping provide a healthier and safer environment for youth.
He says the scanner has already helped attract highly skilled medical personnel to the region.
Meanwhile, Executive Director for the Hospital Foundation Janice Isberg says CN’s eagerness to become involved in the project and the company’s focus on health and safety are good news for Fort St. John.
CN employs 60 people in and around the Fort St. John area.
