New Ultrasound Unveiled at South Shore Regional Hospital

ultrasoundDonors of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore took over the Diagnostic Imaging department at South Shore Regional Hospital Monday, May 7th, to see the new ultrasound their generosity purchased through Radiothon 2018.

Donning new high-tech probes and wands, the ultrasound machine is replacing a 10-year old unit that’s quality was degrading.

“In a year, these units will process around 3,000 ultrasound exams at South Shore Regional Hospital,” says Radiologist Dr. Chen Meng. “Having this new unit will provide top quality exams to all who need it and our sonographers now have improved equipment to work with.”

Over $150,000 of the nearly $180,000 unit was raised through Radiothon 2018, hosted by CKBW & Country 100.7. Station Manager Eric Whynot, who also sits as the Vice-Chair on the Health Services Foundation’s Board, says seeing the excitement of Radiothon day and the excitement of the donors seeing the difference their donation is making in the community really brings everything full circle.

“Each Radiothon day we are always impressed by how many people go out of their way to make a donation to the Foundation. Our Radiothon raises funds on par with that of larger centres like Saint John. The generosity of the South Shore is amazing.”

The push to raise $1-million through Radiothon hits the airwaves February 14th, 2019. To help raise funds check out the Health Services Foundation’s website www.healthservicesfoundation.ca.
