It’s something that just about everyone in North Grenville is talking about – persistent, community driven efforts to purchase a CT Scanner for the Kemptville District Hospital. Last week, Royal Lepage Team Realty also joined in the effort and had a little fun at the same time!
“We had a fabulous time raising funds for the hospital CT Scanner campaign today!” Nina Tachuk told the Times on October 4. She explained that the team raised over $800 in just 2 hours.
“Hot dogs, hamburgers and cake… we had a wonderful turnout and spread awareness of the urgent need to get that CT Scanner in our hospital,” Nina added.
Multiple fundraisers are underway to get CT Scanner dollars rolling in, including a benefit CD, and a mass mailout of a funding plea flyer that was delivered not only to North Grenville residents, but to some areas outside of the Municipality as well.
What exactly is a CT Scanner and why is it important to have locally? The Mayo Clinic explains: “A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do. A CT scan has many uses, but it’s particularly well-suited to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.”
