Revolutionize medical care at CMH

CMHF needs to raise $4 million in order to acquire essential equipment that the Hospital has needed to purchase or replace for some time. These and many other core medical tools and equipment are urgently needed at CMH to ensure that we can continue to provide quality health care and acute care close to home. New technology also allows us to take full advantage of an increasingly connected health care environment.

We will be able to diagnose more people right here at CMH, detect abnormalities and cancers early, focus on our patients, reduce their travel time to other centres for consultations or procedures, and make sure that their experience at CMH is comfortable and safe. Patient-focused care has always been a priority at CMH, and with the acquisition of these and other items we can continue to deliver the level of excellence in patient care our community has to come to expect from us. It is only by staying current and relevant to our community as a modern health care hub can we ensure the long-term viability of our hospital. Most certainly, not stepping up to replace or acquire equipment now will put our ability to provide quality health care close to home at great risk in the near future.

Diagnostic services, or lab services, are the very foundation of patient care. The ability to detect cancers early is understandably important to everyone in our community, young or old. Acquiring colonscopes will allow us to move forward and establish a colon cancer screening program. Gastroscopes detect abnormalities quickly, efficiently and safely. The latest generation of PACS workstations allows specialists located in other hospitals and medical facilities to remotely review images, which can help to expedite diagnoses. A portable X-ray machine is an important acquisition, both in terms of staff safety and patient comfort.
