FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation has contributed to MRI imaging at the Fort St. John Hospital.

The Foundation has put $150,000.00 towards the service.

The machine is expected to reduce wait times for MRI services and also help avoid lengthy trips elsewhere to receive scans.

Executive Director, Gord Klassen, says “We are extremely pleased that the Fort St. John Hospital will be receiving a permanent MRI. The installation of this equipment in our hospital aligns perfectly with the Foundation’s mandate to ‘enhance patient care and comfort’, so it was obvious to us that we should contribute to this project.”

The Hospital Foundation says the funds for this are from the money raised from the past 2 years’ Bluey Day events, and will be allocated from the Foundation’s ‘Cancer Treatment and Diagnostic’ Fund.

The installation of the MRI machine is expected in Spring of 2017.
