Letters to the Editor - Dear Editor:

At a regular meeting of the Gander Shrine Club, the matter of the location for the proposed Central Newfoundland MRI Unit was discussed.

This item arose because of the advantage the MRI machine would have in being available for the Shriners Outreach Orthopedic Clinic.

The Shriners just last summer established their Province wide Outreach Clinic at the James Paton Memorial Hospital, and it will certainly be a distinct advantage for the medical staff visiting our clinic from the Shriners Hospital in Montreal to have the MRI machine right in the James Paton Memorial Hospital.

The Shriners Outreach clinic, which is dedicated to the health and well being of pediatric children in the province, was established to lessen the stress on patients and family members having to travel to Montreal for consultation on the treatment required.

The James Paton Memorial Hospital is very fortunate to have three highly qualified orthopedic surgeons, who will benefit greatly, and therefore their patients, in having the MRI machine at their disposal.

The Gander Shrine Club is therefore very supportive of the James Paton Memorial Hospital, the Town of Gander, and other community groups in lobbying the provincial government to have the MRI machine placed in Gander.
