Diagnostic Imaging is the figurative backbone of our hospital. Our skilled physicians, technologists, nurses, and support staff complete over 700,000 scans each year across our three hospital sites. From cardiac to cancer care, emergency medicine to paediatrics, our Diagnostic Imaging teams partner across every facet of our organization to enable the highest quality care.
But they can’t do it without access to the advanced diagnostic equipment needed for a community of our size. There is a continuous need to replace our equipment, including CTs, MRIs, Ultrasounds, and X-rays. With a projected 45 percent increase in Mississauga’s population over the next 20 years, keeping up with the growing demand, while ensuring our diagnostic imaging equipment remains state-of-the-art, is a critical priority.
Community support for our Diagnostic Imaging program will enable the highest quality diagnostic care and exceptional patient experiences through the acquisition of advanced imaging technologies. This includes a new CT scanner for our Mississauga Hospital site, which will enable a 50 percent reduction in cardiac diagnostic wait-times, and two new MRIs for our Credit Valley Hospital site. Sustained investment in our Diagnostic Imaging program is critical to ensure that we continue to deliver the most advanced care, close to home.
