Better health care for Bulkley Valley residents is not that far away.
The long-awaited CT scanner at the Bulkley Valley District Hospital will soon be operational.
The scanner arrived last week and should be ready to go by mid-July.
Communications Lead for Capital Projects, Andrea Palmer said it’s great news.
“It’s amazing to get a big, beautiful, new machine that can help support furthering patient services.”
The CT scanner will provide a vital service to the town with approximately 4000 people having to travel hours out of Smithers every year to access scanners in Prince George and Terrace.
