Farming for Health 2015 is underway!
A new CT scanner is our $1 million
fund-raising focus for this year
The CT scanner at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre is now 10 years old and needs to be replaced. The manufacturer has advised that they will stop making parts for the current machine at the end of this year, and since the current machine is increasingly out of service for repair we know we will be unable to have it fixed early in 2016.
A CT scanner costs approximately $1 million, making
it the most expensive piece of equipment for which
The Health Foundation has raised funds. However,
it will do tremendous good because the technology
has changed so much in the last 10 years. Our
current CT is a 16-slice machine and the new
machine will be a 256-slice scanner.
Last year 4,300 patients used the CT scanner at the
Regional Hospital and many of them used the
machine several times. Every year the number of patients needing a CT scan grows. This new machine will enable an earlier diagnosis of some cancers and heart conditions. It will save lives.
