By Rosalind Russell – The North Shore Health Network Medical Imaging department is excited to announce that services are expanding at the Thessalon and Richards Landing – Matthews sites in April.

Tim Vine, NSHN President & CEO says effective Tuesday April 2, ultrasound services will be available at the Thessalon Site once a week.

Vine says ultrasound appointments at the Thessalon Site will be booked between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, one day per week.

He adds all requisitions should be sent to the Blind River Site by providers for triaging – including any specialists or non-local providers.

At this time, there are some ultrasound types that are unable to be completed in Thessalon, these appointments will remain in Blind River.

Instructions will be provided to patients in advance of their appointment.
