Make a meaningful impact on someone's healthcare journey.

The only SPECT-CT camera at St. Mary’s is close to 17 years old. Some scans can take multiple days. Plus, the existing cameras are at risk of failure; they often run until late at night to accommodate as many tests as possible. Equipment breaking down could lead to delays in testing, piling stress and anxiety on the patient and their loved ones.

Better technology means our clinical staff can provide better, more accurate diagnoses to patients. Our community deserves to be treated with the latest technology.

Hear it from staff giving care to patients.

Dr. Rick Dubeau, Chief of the Regional Department of Nuclear Medicine and Stacey Gallo, Nuclear Medicine Technologist talk about the pressing need for new equipment in their department.

As a regional lead, the Nuclear Medicine program at St. Mary’s meets a critical gap by offering tests in the Kitchener-Waterloo Region that are not available in surrounding cities.

Getting the latest technology allows St. Mary’s to give the care your community deserves, with more accurate diagnoses.

There's a ripple effect to these delays. As patients become more ill, they will require more intensive care and resources. - Dr. Rick Dubeau, Medical Director, Regional Nuclear Medicine Program
