KAWARTHA LAKES-Patients needing the precision imaging of an MRI at Ross Memorial Hospital have received a caring holiday gift from the Kinette Club of Bobcaygeon. The Club recently made a $2,000 donation to support the community’s new MRI.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging helps physicians confidently diagnose disease and injury in the brain, spine, joints, breasts and organs. It’s a vital tool for detecting herniated or bulging disks, arthritic changes, and cancer.
Officials say more than 500 patient exams are scanned at the Ross every month.
As government funding doesn’t cover the cost of medical equipment and technology, such as the MRI, these state-of-the-art tools are only made possible with the support of donors like the Kinettes.
“The Bobcaygeon Kinettes take their mission — to serve the community’s greatest needs — to heart,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “Over the past 27 years, the Kinettes have made local patient care a priority, with gifts totalling more than $43,000 to support the Hospital’s priority needs. We’re so fortunate to have generous service organizations like the Kinettes ensuring our community’s Hospital provides the best care possible.”
