New mammography suite at hospital site in Walkerton

A newly renovated mammography suite with upgraded equipment and technology is now open at South Bruce Grey Health Centre’s (SBGHC) Walkerton hospital site.

This new technology replaces the previous equipment from 2008.

The total project cost of $485,000, including equipment and renovations, has been supported by the Walkerton & District Hospital Foundation.

“The members of the Walkerton Hospital Foundation’s Mammography Campaign are proud to support the purchase of the new mammography machine for our local hospital,” said Sharon Kramer-Dales and Janice Swanton, Mammography Fundraising Committee Co-Chairs. “Although the new machine has now been installed, we are still in the process of raising funds to meet our financial commitment of $485,000. We are very privileged to have such a strong community support system that continues to allow us to provide our hospital with the most up-to-date essential equipment. Thank you to all who continue to support us in this campaign.”

The mammography program at the Walkerton hospital supports both the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) and the Breast Assessment Program (BAP), performing over 2,000 mammograms annually.
