Thanks to the generous support of community donors, the Nuclear Medicine Camera replacement project is officially underway.  Over the next 14 months, three cameras will be replaced to ensure modern, state-of-the-art Nuclear Medicine services at Quinte Health.  This regional service, located at Belleville General Hospital (BGH), helps to diagnose cancer and other serious diseases. 

Parrott Foundation Representatives and donors of the BGH Foundation (BGHF) joined Quinte Health and BGHF leaders to celebrate this important milestone and to hear from the Nuclear Medicine team directly about how the new cameras will impact care. 

According to Quinte Health President and CEO Stacey Daub, modernizing the Nuclear Medicine equipment will ensure staff and physicians have the most up-to-date tools they need to extend the best possible care for our patients and our communities close to home. 

“Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Parrott Foundation for their outstanding contribution to this project—the Parrott Foundation has been steadfast in its support to ensure we have a strong local health care system,” commented Daub.  “We are equally honoured to celebrate the remarkable contributions of Hastings County and the many individual donors, stewarded by our colleagues at the Belleville General Hospital Foundation.”  

During the event, Daub shared her thanks to Kristin Crowe who has been open about sharing her cancer journey including the importance of the nuclear medicine cameras as a critical tool for diagnosis and supporting precision surgery and targeted treatment.  She noted the tremendous importance of having the service locally, as otherwise, it would have meant arranging for travel to Kingston or other centres for this service.

Steve Cook, Executive Director, Belleville General Hospital Foundation echoed Stacey’s appreciation for the donors who made the project possible.  “Today, as we celebrate the culmination of our fundraising efforts for this momentous project, I’m filled with profound gratitude for the generosity of our community,” expressed Cook.  

“When we started fundraising in 2019, we knew it was a big undertaking, and I couldn’t be prouder of the more than 1,500 donors who stepped up and contributed towards the $3.9 million goal to bring this project to life,” Cook added.  “Your belief in our mission to keep exceptional care close to home has allowed us to achieve a significant milestone in our journey towards advancing healthcare excellence for our region. Thank you.”
