The latest delivery of community funding from the Prince Rupert Port Authority will be heading the way of Terrace, but benefit the entire Northwest, with the Port's Community Investment Fund investing close to 20,000 dollars in a clinic at Mills Memorial Hospital.
In an information update from Thursday, the PRPA outlined the scope of this latest use of the funding program.
The Women’s Wellness Centre and Colposcopy Clinic at Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace is now better equipped to serve patients from across Northwest BC thanks to a $19,500 Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) investment.
The Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation received the contribution by way of PRPA’s Community Investment Fund to support the purchase of a new OmniScope Hysteroscopy and Fluent Fluid Management System, saving patients from travelling outside the region for critical diagnostic and follow-up treatments.
This new uterine scope and fluid management system is the best available equipment to diagnose and treat uterine polyps, post-menopausal complications, pre-cancers, and cancers. It allows for physicians and nursing staff to carry out a minimally invasive procedure to biopsy and remove cancerous uterine masses and fibroids safely and with precision.
