New CT Scanner to Improve Health Care in Inverness

Government will fund a new CT scanner at the Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital in the new year.

“This is an important addition to the hospital in Inverness,” said Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine.

“This scanner will allow patients to get the scans they need close to home, and will help attract top-notch medical professionals to the area.”

The new scanner will cost over $1 million. It is expected to take six months to one year to have the scanner installed and operational.

“This is good news for the Inverness hospital,” said Dianne Calvert Simms, CEO, Cape Breton District Health Authority. “This is an equipment priority that supports our health care providers in doing their work, while directly benefitting the people of Inverness County.”

“The CT scanner will be a great help for the people of Inverness County, and it will help physicians to better treat patients close to home,” said Dr. N.G. Pillai, family physician and surgeon at Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital.

The province will work closely with the Cape Breton District Health Authority to ensure hospital staff are trained and ready to operate the new scanner.
