Petition is now closed! We thank everyone for their rapid responses to this community concern. The public input has been recognized by Fraser Health and Mayor and Council. Mayor Horn has been working on everyone's behalf to get information about the situation and he has a statement on the City of Mission's website that everyone should read! Once again, thank you for your continued support for Mission Memorial Hospital. You all are appreciated and heard.

STOP the Transfer of Imaging Technicians from Mission Memorial Hospital.

Where is the community consultation?

The Fraser Valley has been experiencing an increased shortage of health care staff. The pandemic has only worsened the problem. Now it appears that imaging technicians from Mission Memorial Hospital are being asked by the Provincial Health Services Authority to help solve shortages at other hospitals. If such vital staff are redeployed, it can be unsafe for remaining staff to work at a reduced staffing level. Any additional staff shortage such as illness will further reduce imaging services to our community resulting in increased wait times or necessitate travel to other communities for X-ray and ultrasound services.

It is clear that the system is overwhelmed. We believe that this attempt at a solution for other sites was made in haste and without consulting the community or staff members to the detriment of diagnostic services in Mission. Our community wants to have our voice heard and to be part of the solution. Mission residents need and deserve timely local access to critical medical diagnostics such as imaging. We don’t want to continue to see services removed from Mission to supply other communities.

Signing this petition will show the elected officials we want Fraser Health and the Provincial Health Services to recognize our growing community and to enhance essential services, not reduce them.

Please share with your contacts to sign this petition and help us reach 5000 signatures as quickly as possible.

Mission All Together for Healthcare (MATH) would like to thank Mission Branch Manager, Sean Melia and, Community Engagement Manager, Anita Jensen, from Aldergrove Credit Union /G & F Financial Group for presenting this cheque to MATH Co-Chairs, Dr Andrew Edelson and Judith Ray at the Mission Branch location on September 23rd 2021!
“There are a fair number of people who think we have an old folks home there not a hospital, and it turns out it’s quite a functional hospital that works well with Abbotsford. Over the past 10 years we have worked hard on developing a better relationship with the regional hospital so we are more a part of the system and are able to do what we need to do, with better efficiency, understanding the limitations of smaller hospitals.”
~Dr Andrew Edelson, Co- Chair, MATH.

A second example to better understand the importance of CT scanners
A 76 year-old female presents to Mission Memorial Hospital Emergency Room with:
7 days of increasing abdominal discomfort, bloating
10kg weight loss over 6 months
Spontaneous vomiting for one day
No bowel movements for 4 days
Exam shows a thin, dehydrated, unwell female with a bloated abdomen, possibly enlarged liver

She has an intestinal obstruction, possible cancer and likely needs surgery

She needs a CT scan
What happens now?
🚑Emergency Room physician (ERP)recognizes the need for a CT scan.
🚑Emergency Room physician calls to arrange for procedure
🚑Emergency Room physician calls Patient Transfer Network (PTN) arranging transfer to Abbotsford Regional Hospital
🚑Mission Memorial Hospital arranges for nurse escort
🚑Patient waits for transfer
🚑Is taken to Abbotsford Regional Hospital, possibly returned to Mission Memorial Hospital
🚑Diagnosis of large bowel obstruction secondary to cancer made
🚑Emergency Room physician calls surgeon on call or Abbotsford Regional Hospital Emergency Room and arranges transfer
This is clearly a lot of time and resources used in order to obtain a CT scan for this particular patient. What should the events look like if the Mission hospital already had a CT scanner?
💉Emergency Room physician (ERP) recognizes the need for a CT scan.
💉Emergency Room physician calls to arrange for procedure
💉Patient wheeled to X-ray department
💉Diagnosis made
💉Emergency Room physician calls surgeon or Abbotsford Regional Hospital 💉Emergency Room physician to arrange transfer and urgent surgery
The CT confirmed the diagnosis and allowed the surgeon to plan the procedure. The surgeon will NOT see the patient without a CT
This likely saves hours and decreases risk of complication from the ruptured appendix and from infection. CT scanners are a NEED and Mission Memorial Hospital does not have one. Help us achieve our goal of bettering health care in Mission by obtaining a CT scanner for our hospital! Visit the link in our bio and find out how you can help us reach this goal! We appreciate any help we get and thank you for helping your community better their health care!
