MRI & Diagnotic Equipment - Estimate to start in the fall of 2018. Estimated at $4.5 million. GBHS's MRI is among the oldest currently in use in Canada and was installed in August 2004 thanks to a successful fundraising campaign by the Five Foundations (Meaford, Centre Grey-Markdale, Owen Sound, Bruce Peninsula - Wiarton & Lions Head and Saugeen Memorial). Approximately 10,000 MRI exams are done annually and the MRI runs 7 days a week, 18-20 hours per day. Patients from across Grey Bruce and beyond access our MRI and our wait times are among the shortest in the region. This is a crucial piece of imaging equipment required for accurate, fast diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions including cancer, brain injuries and heart conditions.
