"Making a difference for patients
right here at home in the North,
-- where we live, work, and play"

Donor Dollars at Work

The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation works collaboratively with Northern Health to help fund the highest priority medical equipment and health care projects that are not funded with limited government funding.

Early detection and more accurate diagnosis is key to achieving the best possible outcome for patients. Northern Health recognizes this and is gearing their equipment asks towards a menu of key diagnostic acquisitions. The Diagnostic SPECT CT Scanner was the first in a multiyear approach to bettering services and healthcare outcomes for residents of the North.
