Louth Hospital MRI Scanner

Wednesday, 5th August 2020 Louth Hospital MRI Scanner

GRS completed work on the new MRI Scanner at Louth Hospital for the Gelder Group in April. The installation of this equipment is the result of substantial effort and fundraising by the people of Louth and nearby villages as part of the Louth Scanner Appeal.

The MRI suite is located at the front of the hospital grounds and the scanner provides detailed and fast scans. It is a vital tool to improve cancer treatment as patients can be scanned earlier, leading to a quicker diagnosis and being able to start treatment sooner.

With Lockdown beginning in late March due to the coronavirus pandemic, as key workers, GRS continued to operate on site throughout,, following safety procedures and social distancing measures, to bring this vital hospital service to completion. Despite the official unveiling of the new suite being postponed due to the virus, the facilities are already operating and being used by patients.
GRS are extremely proud to have been involved in the construction of this service, that will benefit local people for years to come.
