Dauphin Still Waiting on MRI Machine

An NDP MLA wants to know where Dauphin's MRI machine is, months after a project to bring one to Dauphin got put on hold.

 

 Minto MLA Andrew Swan said in question period in the Manitoba Legislature yesterday that "Thousands of patients in the Parklands are travelling to Brandon or to Winnipeg, sometimes tying up an ambulance for most of a day, even though we know there's a new MRI machine somewhere that could be up and running," 

The machine's installation was put on hold in March, weeks before it was supposed to be installed. An addition to the Dauphin hospital to house the machine was nearing completion at the time, and staff had already been hired and trained.

 

The machine was expected to make roughly 3,750 scans per year, and would have saved patients the (sometimes overnight) trip to Brandon or Winnipeg for the same procedure.
