On Saturday, February 24/2018, Niagara Health Foundation hosted its Annual Gala at the elegant Sheraton on the Falls. The Tuscan themed event whisked 420 guests away to one of Italy’s most beloved regions, while raising over $80,000 for Medical Imaging equipment needs at Niagara Health.

Each year, approximately 367,000 Medical Imaging exams are performed at Niagara Health sites across the region. From MRI’s, to X-rays, Ultrasounds and CAT Scans, Medical Imaging is indispensable to doctors and medical staff in the diagnosis and treatment of patients by providing information about internal structures and activities inside the body. Some Medical Imaging services operate around the clock at Niagara Health to support the care of inpatients, outpatients, and urgent and emergency cases.

“Medical Imaging services at Niagara Health allow Niagara residents to receive vital diagnostic tests close to home,” explained Dr. Julian Dobranowski, Chief of Medical Imaging at Niagara Health. “Ensuring that our equipment is kept up-to-date means more accurate images, faster treatment decisions and better patient outcomes. The community’s continued support in helping to fund state-of-the-art equipment, allows our team to provide patients with the highest quality of imaging.”

As the second year in a row that proceeds from the Gala have supported Medical Imaging needs at Niagara Health, guests learned about how their support had already impacted care at all sites and how their continued support would help complete the Foundation’s $2.2 million commitment to Medical Imaging.

“Our Annual Gala brings together our thoughtful and generous donors who take pride in helping to make local healthcare better for our families, friends, and neighbours,” said Roger Ali, Niagara Health Foundation’s President and CEO. “Every day, we see the transformative way donations have an immediate and lasting impact on the way Niagara Health delivers care.”

Niagara Health Foundation would like to thank all Gala guests, sponsors and those who donated in support of Medical Imaging, for helping to advance care at Niagara Health. By supporting the purchase of essential equipment, donors are helping build a healthier Niagara for the thousands of patients who rely on Niagara Health for extraordinary care.
