New CT Scanner Arrives At QHC Belleville General Hospital
A new CT scanner arrived today at Quinte Health Care Belleville General Hospital and is expected to be in operation to serve patients by the first week of October. The scanner is thanks to the generosity of The City of Belleville and the people in our community through the Belleville General Hospital Foundation.
Quinte Health Care currently has two CT scanners between its four hospitals – one at QHC BGH and one at QHC TMH. The CT scanner at BGH was beyond its life expectancy and needed to be replaced. “Donors are the heroes of this story,” said BGH Foundation Executive Director, Drew Brown. “Our Radiologists are always saying that the CT scanner is the ‘work horse’ of the department; they tell us they absolutely must have a dependable, high functioning CT in order to deliver the best care possible. It’s thanks to our donors that they will soon have that again.”
