Why should you contribute to the For you, sweet heart Fundraising Campaign?

It’s not just about acquiring new equipment. It’s about using the latest medical technology. This scanner can save a patient’s life.

Current equipment is insufficient
Existing equipment no longer meets demand:
  • To date, too few hospitals in the region offer the community this revolutionary technology, and wait times for a CT Scan are constantly increasing;
  • Doctors and healthcare professionals at Montfort Hospital currently share a single first-generation CT Scanner to serve a population of more than 500,000 people;
  • Patients must sometimes wait several weeks to undergo an examination that will determine the severity of their condition, which in turn means delays in receiving the appropriate treatment;
  • In an emergency, patients must undergo a coronary angiogram, an invasive examination that is risky.
Access to the most advanced scanner
The CT Scanner with a Specialized Cardiac Module uses the most advanced technology that exists:
  • A simple, rapid, very precise and non-invasive examination allows doctors to diagnose deadly conditions requiring immediate intervention;
  • It allows specialists to deliver rapid, more comprehensive diagnoses to a greater number of people. We will be able to perform more than 25,900 scans a year as of the first year, and that number will increase in subsequent years;
  • It exposes patients to less radiation and thus reduces risks;
  • It is a new asset in prevention;
  • It provides a more reassuring medical experience to patients.
Savings in the medium term
This rapid and effective procedure will help:
  • Reduce patient travel and transfers;
  • Reduce wait times for the examination;
  • Shorten hospital stays;
  • Reduce the risk of post-operative complications and the readmission rate;
  • Decrease the number of ER visits;
  • Decrease the number of hospitalizations.

As members of the community, let’s commit to excellence in healthcare! Read the testimonials.

“It’s difficult for a patient to understand what’s wrong. Being able to see the problem changes everything. In fact, advanced technology helps reassure the patient and reduce their stress. A picture’s worth a thousand words, and the new CT Scanner lets you see 3D images of your own heart!
