Will you help us save lives?
Dr. Knibutat, Chief & Medical Director of Medical Imaging, and his team perform life-saving surgeries every day at Grand River Hospital (GRH). Some of these life-changing procedures can now be done with minimally invasive techniques and have many benefits for patients like general anesthetic, incisions and longer recovery times.
The upgrades and technology in the medical imaging department allow surgeons to perform revolutionary procedures like transarterial chemoembolization, or TACE. Dr. Knibutat remembers the day he was able to offer this new life-saving treatment in his own community for the very first time to an 80-year-old patient whose liver was severely damaged and had developed a tumour. Until recently, her only option close to home would have been invasive surgery to remove the cancer.
Your generous gift today will help to make sure that these procedures are available to everyone who needs them right here in our community.

You can make a real difference in a tangible way!
While our imaging department is making excellent use of the high-end technology used for TACE and other new procedures, other essential pieces of equipment, such as our dedicated procedure ultrasound machine, is showing its age and needs to be replaced in order for us to continue to advance the level of care, we provide to the community.
