Fondation Hôtel-Dieu d’Arthabaska
Purchase of a leading edge mammography unit and a stereotactic table.
The mammography unit of the Hôtel-Dieu d'Arthabaska purchased in 1998 is currently out of use. Last year the Fondation Hôtel-Dieu d’Arthabaska launched the campaign Le rose au coeur to raise the funds needed to purchase a new leading edge mammography unit and a stereotactic table for performing biopsies and inserting metal tumour marker with greater accuracy and a greater level of comfort for patients. Being more accurate and reliable, this unit will help the Hotel-Dieu to meet deadlines, reduce the margin of error, reduce the number of complementary examinations and risks during surgery, and thus make it possible to avoid having to send users to external centres.
The subsidy made by the QBCF made it possible to launch the campaign and to acquire the new units.
