Bobcaygeon Kinettes’ holiday giving supports community’s new MRI

By Lindsay Advocate

The Kinette Club of Bobcaygeon, pictured here last summer, have made a $2,000 donation towards the hospital's new MRI technology.

Ross Memorial patients needing the precision imaging of an MRI have received a caring holiday gift from the Kinette Club of Bobcaygeon. In December, the Club made a $2,000 donation to support the community’s new MRI.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging helps physicians confidently diagnose disease and injury in the brain, spine, joints, breasts and organs. It’s a vital tool for detecting herniated or bulging disks, arthritic changes, and cancer. More than 500 patient exams are scanned at the Ross every month.

As government funding doesn’t cover the cost of medical equipment and technology, such as the MRI, these state-of-the-art tools are only made possible with the support of donors like the Kinettes.

“The Bobcaygeon Kinettes take their mission — to serve the community’s greatest needs — to heart,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “Over the past 27 years, the Kinettes have made local patient care a priority, with gifts totaling more than $43,000 to support the Hospital’s priority needs. We’re so fortunate to have generous service organizations like the Kinettes ensuring our community’s Hospital provides the best care possible.”
