The Niagara Health Foundation is humbled by the incredible support and community spirit it has seen during its recent efforts to bring a 3rd MRI machine to Niagara.
The Foundation set out in February to bring a third MRI to Niagara Health to improve wait times and provide greater accuracy, allowing Niagara Health to give patients the best possible diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes.
