Current Needs

The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation was established to assist with funding needs of STEGH. Equipment, educational endeavours for nursing staff, and assisting with some of the physical upgrades to the facility have always been priorities for the STEGH Foundation and for the overall healthcare needs of our patients … and that need will continue.

A New CT Scanner – onsite and operational!

With an increase in clinical requirements at STEGH, a new CT Scanner would expand our clinical capabilities. The new unit will exceed expectations in General Imaging, Emergency Medicine, Oncology and a future state of Cardiology Imaging.

The new CT Scanner has higher imaging capabilities, as it acquires 128 slices per rotation up to 384 slices depending on the examination mode that is chosen.

With improved diagnostic quality and technology that aids in the reduction of contrast media and radiation dose, the new CT Scanner will exceed the expectation of both patients and professionals.

Our current CT Scanner is dated and not meeting the diagnostic needs of our patients. There are many more clinical innovations and improvements that will be realized with the installation of the new unit. The future of our CT program at STEGH will only continue to improve the patient care excellence that we provide to our community.

Some features of the new CT Scanner:
