A Computed Tomography machine (CT scanner) is a 3-D computerized x-ray imaging device that rotates around the patient to take successive cross-sectional photos or “image slices.” These image slices (tomographic images) can then be stacked by the computer into a precise 3-D rendering of the physical and the physiological processes of your body. The CT scanner helps doctors to diagnose and treat a variety of ailments by providing more accurate details than what is possible with conventional x-ray machines.
The benefits of CT scans far outweigh any associated risks. CT scans have helped revolutionize diagnosis and treatment and have dramatically decreased the need for exploratory surgeries and other potentially risky invasive procedures.
Your donations will support the purchase of necessary CT Scanning equipment for the Mission Memorial Hospital. Help us provide the most up-to-date medical equipment and the best possible health care to you…our patients.
Your participation and support are greatly appreciated!

From 1975-2002 the hospital had 54 beds and 2 operating rooms. General practitioners and anesthesiologists worked at MMH. There were maternity, pediatrics, surgical and ICU wards. The operating room was also available for emergencies as well.
The big star of the show was our maternity services! Patients from Vancouver, the lower mainland and even Kelowna were coming to have their baby here!
This was the place to be to start your journey as a mother!
Dr.Hector Baillie is an internal medicine specialist who is well-recognized and an excellent consultant and teacher. Possibly the FINEST physician in the province and we had him!

We wanted to share a little bit about Mission's healthcare history.
At the Mission Memorial Hospital, physicians shared responsibilities and GP’s were involved with a little bit of everything!
This included: Office work, surgery, obstetrics, anesthesia and emergency

The hospital’s CEOs were Neville Cox and Randy Wong. They were hired by this board😃. ... See MoreSee Less
MATH in association with many other organization have fund raised the money to allow for a feasibility study in hopes that we can install a CT scanner at the Mission Memorial Hospital. However, the need does not stop there, our goal is to raise one million dollars to purchase the CT scanner.
