Maureen Strickland’s Story

Like most people I had never given much thought to MRIs. Being claustrophobic the very thought struck dread in my heart. This was all to change mid-March, 2018. I am eternally grateful that we have an MRI machine at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital. This fantastic piece of equipment enabled my specialists to confirm their diagnosis and set me on the road to recovery.
The MRI at GBHS Owen Sound is used daily: including evenings and weekends, with people on a waiting list. The current machine is 14 years of age and parts are getting harder to obtain. The need for a new machine is great and as the government does not provide funding it is vital for the community to take up this responsibility.
I am extremely grateful to the technologists who operate our MRI. They are professional and compassionate and made my test less of an ordeal. I am so thankful that I didn’t have to travel away from the area and would like to stress the importance of a new MRI to fill the needs of our catchment area.
