Foundation News: MRI Focus (February 2024)
MRI – Transforming Our Regional Health Care, One Image at a Time is the new slogan for this campaign that speaks to how this equipment will enhance health care in the region. Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC) announced in February 2023 that it will receive base funding from Ontario Health Northwest to support the operation of a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanner. SLMHC is responsible for all capital costs associated with construction to house the new MRI, as well as the scanner itself. As new building construction is required, the cost is estimated to be around $7 million. On December 1, 2023, the SLMHC Foundation launched a fundraising campaign to directly support the required costs associated with this project to make a locally available MRI a reality within our region.
Morgan Family Presents SLMHC Foundation MRI Campaign With $150,000 Christmas Present to Benefit the Region
An MRI unit is a step closer to becoming a reality in Sioux Lookout thanks to the support of a long-time local family. On Dec. 15, members of the Morgan family, joined by their staff at Morgan Fuels, presented representatives from the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre Foundation with a cheque for $150,000 to be put towards an MRI unit for the Meno Ya Win Health Centre. Darrell Morgan, who is also president of Morgan Fuels, shared, ““The Morgan family, being part of Sioux Lookout and wanting to give back to the community… We see that that as a regional thing that will serve not only the surrounding communities close by, but all the northern First Nations as well and we feel the importance of that. To help with healthcare in the region is vital and very much needed in our area and we wanted to be involved and help get it started.”
