Current Priorities

Acquisition of a New MRI Machine

Objective: $2 million in 2 years

Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is a routine examination that allows precise exploration of the inside of the body, producing a fine analysis of various tissues such as muscles, heart, brain, spinal cord, tendons, tumours, etc.

The CISSS des Laurentides currently has two MRI machines in its territory and they operate 24 hours a day. Despite this, they are unable to meet the demand and patients have to wait for 9 to 12 months for this type of diagnostic examination.

The Foundation is therefore partnering with the Hospital to raise $2 million to purchase an additional machine, which will be located in a new services pavilion near the Hôpital régional de Saint-Jérôme.
