Brightshores Staff and Execs cutting the ribbon.


Brightshores Health System celebrated a significant milestone today, holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the installation and commencement of operations of a second Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine in its Medical Imaging Department at the Owen Sound Hospital.

This expansion is part of Brightshores’ ongoing efforts to enhance healthcare services in the region and ensure that physicians have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic tools. The second MRI machine will significantly increase the capacity for diagnostic imaging services, reducing wait times, and improving overall patient care.

Ann Ford, President and CEO of Brightshores, attended the event and said, “We are thrilled to introduce the second MRI machine at the Owen Sound Hospital. This is a major step in our journey to enhance healthcare services for our community. This investment allows us to provide timely and accurate diagnoses to our patients, improving their overall health outcomes. Let me take this opportunity to thank our generous donors who continue to support the purchase of medical equipment.”

The launch of both the second MRI unit in Owen Sound and the recent opening of the CT scanner at the Brightshores’ Hospital in Southampton support our commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services and we thank the community for their continued support.
