Another milestone has been reached in the Alexandra Marine and General Hospital's "All In For Your Health" fundraising campaign.

Officials are looking to raise $3.5 million to purchase a new CT scanner, and modernize the hospital's mental health unit.

Shannon Lahay, Executive Director of the Alexandra Marine and General Hospital Foundation, says 85 per cent of the fundraising goal has now been achieved.

Lahay hopes to reach 90 per cent of the foundation's fundraising target ahead of the Labour Day weekend.

With the only mental health facility in Huron County, Lahay says the upgrade will help bring services into the modern era.

She tells Country 104.9 News a newer model CT scanner will help provide better imagery for physicians to care for patients locally.

The All In For Your Health campaign runs until the end of the year.
