The Health Services Restructuring Commission (HSRC), a provincially appointed body, supported the findings of a study completed by the local community to co-locate the two Sarnia hospitals on one site. The Lambton Hospitals Group redevelopment project will consolidate both Sarnia sites into one large facility. The project will solidify and enhance hospital care throughout Lambton County by allowing us to develop centralized, on-site programs and services that are not currently possible. It will extend our tradition of providing quality healthcare and give us the facilities and technological capability to embrace the future with excitement and confidence.
Project Lambton Hospitals shows a considerable commitment toward achieving an unprecedented level of patient care in the Sarnia-Lambton area.
LHG has worked very closely with the Ministry of Health (MoH), and the Health Reform Implementation Team (HRIT) on this project. To ensure that we meet our projections, the Lambton Hospitals Foundation continues to plan fundraising events in order to generate the community's 30% share of the cost.
A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system was installed in 2001. This highly sensitive diagnostic tool augments the services provided by the Lambton Hospitals Group's Diagnostic Imaging Department. Magnetic Resonance Imaging enhances the ability of radiologists to examine the body beyond traditional radiation methods such as X-rays and CT scanners.
