Project

Fondation Santé Beauce-Etchemin

Contribute towards purchasing, setting up and installing a digital mammography unit and connected furniture at the CSSS de Beauce.

Description

In 2014 the Centre hospitalier Beauce-Etchemin needed to replace its obsolete mammography unit with a new digital mammography unit.

When mammography examinations can be done in Saint-Georges, people don’t have to leave their area to have the procedure. The proximity stimulates women to participate in the breast cancer screening program offered in Quebec.

This project was made possible through the combined efforts of the Fondation Santé Beauce-Etchemin, the Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Beauce, and the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.
