Brant Community Healthcare SystemBrant Community Healthcare System unveils new CT scanner

The Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) unveiled their new CT scanner on Friday, July 21, 2023.

BCHS will be offering improved access to Computed Tomography (CT) care with the purchase of the new scanner. A CT scanner is a critical piece of technology that helps to diagnose and treat trauma, cancer, stroke, infection, and many other conditions.

BCHS extends heartfelt gratitude to their network of community donors, whose contributions to the Brant Community Healthcare System Foundation made the $2 million purchase possible.

“Each success of the Brant Community Healthcare System Foundation is truly due to the generosity of our community, our donors and our volunteers. We are so appreciative of the donor investment that helps us support new spaces, new technology and medical equipment that directly impacts patient care,” said Lee Ferrao, Chair of the BCHS Foundation Board of Directors.

Demand for CT scans has increased by more than 200% since 2010, when the hospital’s other CT scanner was installed. The Diagnostic Imaging Department at BCHS is one of the busiest in the region, operating 24/7 and performing 50,000 CT scans every year.

Adding a second scanner to the organization will improve access and offer more accurate and timely results to patients seeking care at BCHS.

BCHS is grateful to the Foundation and donors for making this purchase possible and furthering the mission of working together to build a
healthier community.
