How does socialized healthcare sound now?

A local hospital is hoping that the provincial government will approve a request for a second MRI scanner:

In April, the wait time for for an MRI scan at Grand River was 95 days, according to Health Ministry statistics. This is far above the provincial target of 28 days but below the actual provincial average of 105.

It takes 220 days to get an MRI at the London Health Sciences Centre and 50 days at Guelph General Hospital. [emphasis mine]

A target of 28 days, but an average of 105 days, or three and a half months. The Ontario government likes to claim that it has reduced wait times, but according to its own site, there is only one hospital in the province actually meeting the target.

Just pray you don’t get sick.
