Health Sciences North Foundation (HSNF) is hosting their sixth annual golf tournament on Thursday, July 11.
Participants will tee off at the Idylwylde Golf and Country Club in support of the purchase of new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners for Health Sciences North (HSN).
“Currently, the single MRI at HSN is operating 24/7 and is nearing its 10-year lifespan. It needs to be replaced,” said Mary Lou Hussak, Executive Director of HSNF.
“Supporting the HSNF Golf for MRI is just one of the many ways you can help ensure that HSN is equipped to provide enhanced medical imaging to support its unique and specialty role as a regional leader and acute teaching facility.”
HSN performs approximately 13,000 MRI tests every year to support the treatment of 600,000 residents in Northeastern Ontario. The average wait time for an MRI scan at HSN is 66 days, which is almost three times higher than the provincial target of 28 days.
Becoming a sponsor for the HSNF Golf for MRI is one way of investing in the growth of healthcare in our community.
High profile sponsorship opportunities are still available and will ensure that everyone who may need an MRI will benefit from shorter wait times, accessible hours, improved diagnosis and treatment, and reduced travel burden and costs.
