$3.2 million MRI Machine a key milestone for SAH Foundation

It has been a full year since the new MRI machine was introduced at Sault Area Hospital! This $3.2 million modern MRI machine is a big upgrade from the previous equipment, bringing improvements to medical imaging and patient care.

One of the standout features of the new MRI is its increased scan speed. This improvement not only ensures a more comfortable experience for patients but also means quicker access to essential diagnostic information. Reduced scan times contribute to a more patient-friendly process.

Franci Rogers, Manager of Medical Imaging and Cardiac Combine at Sault Area Hospital, expressed her gratitude to donors who have made outstanding care possible by funding this cornerstone of local care.

“The MRI machine is an essential investment for the health of our community. With the latest technology, my team can provide outstanding care to patients who rely on this service. Thank you for your gifts – you have helped to bring vital equipment to Sault Area Hospital.“
