It's quite a gift!
Domtar has donated $30,000 to the Dryden Regional Hospital Foundation.
“Domtar is committed to investing in the greater Dryden community, where our mill operates, and to promoting health and wellnes, as it is one of our core community investment pillars,” said Jim Blight, general manager at Domtar’s Dryden Mill.
“The Dryden Regional Health Centre is a pivotal institution that we are so grateful for, and we hope that Domtar’s donation will help the hospital continue to serve the people in our community and the surrounding region,” Blight added.
The hospital foundation's collecting for a new CT scanner, because the old one is out of date and it has become inoperable.
“It’s particularly important to us to continue to provide safe, effective and compassionate care, when our patients are experiencing an illness," said spokesman Wade Petranik.
"Access to diagnosis and treatment options in our home communities -- not only means timeliness for results -- it means that our patients don’t have to leave Dryden -- or their families -- to travel to larger or neighbouring centres for specialized services like CT scans,” said Petranik, who is president and chief executive officer for the Dryden Regional Health Centre.
“Domtar’s overwhelming support of our campaign aligns with our compassion for our community and our efforts to provide the best care right here, at home. We’re sincerely appreciative of their support,” Petranik added.
The hospital estimates 5,000 images were taken from 2,000 patients last year.
