Nova Scotia is committed to the sustainability of our infrastructure. In fact, we have spent every dollar of the Federal Medical Equipment Fund over the last five years directly on medical equipment. We have introduced new PET scanners and doubled our MRI capacity. We have equipped all our ambulances with 12-lead defibrillators, and the majority of our facilities with 64-slice CT scanners.
We're also making significant capital investments in our facilities. One of the region's largest hospitals, the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, is getting a new emergency room. We are also replacing and upgrading facilities in other parts of province like the Colchester Regional Hospital, in Truro, and the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital in Tatamagouche.
