Guardian Angel Campaign Underway

Owen Sound | by Ken Hashizume  

The Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation are hoping to raise $400,000 for a new MRI.

The Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation are launching their annual Guardian Angel Campaign.

Their goal is to raise $400,000 towards a $4.7 Million Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system.

Foundation's Executive Director Amy McKinnon says they are intensely raising money for the project.

She says they are hoping that the support they received when they brought in a new MRI 14 years ago will still be there today.

McKinnon says MRI has become an essential part of the Grey Bruce Health Services.

She says before an MRI was a nice-to-have piece of equipment and now it has become a need-to-have machine.

McKinnon says people can expect an Guardian Angel ornament in their mailbox and are being encouraged to return it with a message along with a donation.

She says they put the messages they receive on an honour roll and the ornaments will also be put on a Christmas tree on display at the hospital and at the Heritage Place Shopping Centre.

The 2017 Guardian Angel Campaign raised around $375,000 to help to purchase ten new anaesthesia machines for use in the Operating Rooms plus one machine with a specialized monitor for use in the MRI Suite.
