January 4, 2021
Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows was a magnet for health care upgrades in 2020.
At the top of the list, Ridge Meadows Hospital got a new $5-million magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine in June.
There has been a lot of renovations at the hospital in preparation for the machine’s arrival. The floor had to be reinforced to support the 5,000 kilogram machine, walls moved, the area sound proofed.
“It’s a fantastic thing for the community and the hospital. It’s huge,” said medical director Okert Lampen said, not only of its size and weight, but of its significance to future patient care.
