MRI an investment in healthcare that's worth every penny
Medicine is increasingly growing in complexity and the new technologies are constantly improving the care physicians are able to provide to their patients, says Dr. Laurel Moore, Chief of Medical Staff.
Before the arrival of the MRI in Stratford, patients were often waiting in excess of six months for a scan. They were forced to travel to London and even Owen Sound for an MRI, often at inconvenient hours through all kinds of weather. Now Stratford has amongst the shortest waiting lists in the province."
The MRI has also lived up to its billing as a piece of technology that helps attract physicians and other healthcare workers to our region. That include radiologists and technicians who work directly with the MRI, but also physicians who simply want their patients to have timely access to a piece of technology that's indispensable.
I'm very grateful to donors in our community and throughout our region who stepped forward to help pay for our MRI. It's an investment in healthcare that's worth every penny.
