Medical Imaging Centre Campaign
Medical imaging is fundamental to the day-to-day of physicians and surgeons within all hospital departments. Medical imaging equipment provides comprehensive diagnostic information that helps our physicians diagnose problems, track the progression of an ongoing illness, or monitor the effectiveness of treatment.
Access to state-of-the-art imaging equipment at Richmond Hospital’s future Medical Imaging Centre, to be located in the Yurkovich Family Pavilion, will enable necessary, thorough diagnoses and well-informed decisions about immediate care and expected future outcomes.
With your donation, we will be able to double not only the specialized equipment and the physical space, but also ensure Richmond Hospital is responding to the growing needs of the community with timely, accurate, and the appropriate treatment close to home.
Richmond’s population is growing rapidly. By 2035, it is expected that usage volumes at Richmond Hospital’s Medical Imaging Department will increase by more than 75%. This includes serving acutely ill patients from within the hospital and those patients referred through community-based services.
You can help by coming together as a community and making a donation towards the future Medical Imaging Centre Campaign to serve the expected increase of patient volume in Richmond in the years to come.
Your donation will help:
- Fully equip the new medical imaging centre by doubling imaging tools to enable timely and enhanced access for patients
- More than double the physical space to accommodate over 200,000 patients a year
- Purchase state-of-the-art imaging technologies to help provide improved image quality, reduced exposure to radiation and faster, more accurate diagnostic services
- Limit or even avoid invasive medical procedures for patients
- Establish a satellite medical imaging centre in the new Emergency Department
Richmond Hospital Foundation is raising $20 million to fund excellence and innovative technologies in the expanded, future Medical Imaging Centre including CT scanners, MRI machines, mammography machines, SPECT machines, X-Ray machines, and interventional radiology machines.
This is your opportunity to help supply Richmond’s community of care with the latest imaging technology. Together we can ensure the medical imaging team at Richmond Hospital have the best tools to make a difference in lives of individuals and families. Be a catalyst in Richmond healthcare. Donate today.
“Technology advances in Medical Imaging have transformed the way physicians practice medicine. Today, we’re able to visualize more than mere anatomy of the body – we can actually see inside […] allowing us to evaluate how they function.”
