New MRI Unit to be installed at Western Memorial Regional Hospital

Western Health is installing new MRI equipment at the Western Memorial Regional Hospital.

The MRI replacement project is underway and is expected to be complete within six months.

A temporary portable MRI unit will be in place during the installation of the new equipment.

Some parking spaces have been removed near the staff entrance on the west side of the building.

Three accessible parking spaces will be moved from the side of the hospital to the front of the hospital.

The current MRI unit at Western Memorial Regional Hospital is due to be replaced and the new equipment will be moved to the new acute care hospital when it’s complete.
