Government supporting MRI purchases in Dartmouth and South Shore


The provincial government is providing funds for the construction, procurement and installation of MRI scanners at Dartmouth General and South Shore Regional Hospitals.

A release states the Dartmouth General Hospital Foundation and the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore have launched campaigns to buy each scanner.
