With your support, a successful $3.5 million capital campaign will help the AMGH care for you, your loved ones and your community by enhancing the delivery of excellent health care close to home.

Mental Health & Addictions Unit Redevelopment

Our current Mental Health & Addictions Unit was built in the late 1970’s and has had no physical changes made to the space since that time. The renovated Mental Health & Addictions Unit will have a significant positive impact on the healing process for patients and their families.

The redevelopment of this crucial unit will:

  • Increase the usable capacity of the 20-bed acute inpatient mental health & addictions unit
  • Construct single-patient rooms with private bathrooms
  • Use natural light and clear, intuitive way-finding
  • Provide a social hub with dining room, group activity space and recreation therapy
  • Increase safety and security of patients, families and staff through state-of-the-art security technology
  • Enhance nursing, psychology and psychiatric support

“Mental health is a high priority within our healthcare system. At AMGH we have a psychiatric unit that is now over 40 years old and requires significant renovations to meet current standards of care. A properly designed and staffed unit enhances the patient experience and is instrumental in achieving positive outcomes.”

Dr. Patrick Conlon
AMGH Chief of Psychiatry

CT Scanner Replacement

“Replacing the CT scanner at AMGH is necessary, not only to maintain the services we offer, but to do so in a safer and quicker way for our patients.”

Colleen Maguire AMGH Digital Imaging Department

“The doctor said they caught it just in time or it could have been fatal. I thank that machine for that.”

Pat O, who survived a blood clot in lungs thanks to AMGH’s CT scanner

AMGH currently has the only CT scanner in Huron County. The average lifespan of a CT scanner is 10 years; our current CT scanner is 8 years old and remains operational, however as technology advances, it becomes more difficult and costly to maintain.

Having a CT scanner close to home provides significant benefits to patients and physicians:

  • For patients, it means less travel time, shorter wait times and faster results.
  • For physicians, it is an essential diagnostic tool that provides timely results and is essential to patient care treatment planning. The CT scanner also enables AMGH to be the only provider of Telestroke services in Huron County.
  • For the hospital, a CT scanner is helpful in the recruitment and retention of qualified personnel.

The new CT scanner will reduce the amount of radiation that patients are exposed to and provides significantly-improved image quality for the technicians and physicians to use in the assessment and care of patients.
