Caisse Alliance donates $100,000 for CT scanner

WN General Hospital Board chair Collin Bourgeois (left) and CEO Cynthia Desormiers (right) accept a giant $100,000 cheque from Caisse Alliance representatives Alexandre Laferrière and Marcy Lemieux.

The WN General Hospital is a whole lot closer to its goal of installing a new CT scanner, thanks to a huge donation by the Caisse Alliance (Nipissing central region). The financial institution, with branches in Sturgeon Falls, Verner, Field and several other Northern Ontario communities, provided $100,000 towards the medical equipment, slated to be installed at the local hospital before the end of this year.

Hospital CEO Cynthia Desormiers says the equipment is vital in improving patient care. “Earlier access to CT scans and CT results would assist the diagnostic process and allow the medical staff to evaluate their patients, initiate treatment, make appropriate referrals and request consultations with supportive diagnostic reports. This intervention alone will improve patient outcomes. An onsite CT scanner will assist our physicians in determining if a specialty referral is required and reducing or eliminating unnecessary travel for our patients and their families.”
