BLVHC Foundation is currently raising money for a new MRI suite at Bear Lake Memorial Hospital. An MRI saves lives!! An MRI scan can help diagnose cancer, strokes, aneurysms, spinal issues, and other injuries. At Bear Lake Memorial we have access to a mobile MRI machine, however, it is a shared resource between several hospitals and is only here 1 to 2 times per week. There are often waiting lists to receive an MRI with our current setup, which forces out of the area trips to get an MRI scan.
Purchasing an MRI is an investment in us. It is an investment in our community. It is an M-R-I for Y-O-U.
