New X-Ray Equipment Slated For Rural Health Sites In Southern Alberta

 
 
Lethbridge:  Improved X-ray technology will soon be available in Coaldale, Raymond, Fort Macleod, Magrath and Picture Butte. 

"We are replacing X-ray machines in rural sites throughout the southwest area of the South Zone; some of these machines are 25 years old or older," says Dana Meroniuk, AHS Diagnostic Imaging Manager, Rural Southwest. "We are introducing technology that will provide more reliable service to our patients and superior images. The new ergonomic equipment also allows us to serve our patients with quality equipment close to where they live."

Portable X-ray machines will be available in Coaldale, Raymond and Fort Macleod for urgent cases, while the new equipment is installed.  However, most patients will be referred to other sites for X-rays, including nearby rural sites or Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge.

Each installation will take four to eight weeks. The following start dates have been set:

Fort Macleod -- Jan. 21
Magrath -- Jan. 26
Coaldale -- Jan. 26
Picture Butte -- Feb. 14
Raymond -- Feb. 15

The provincial strategic purchasing agreements with our equipment vendors have resulted in significant savings and therefore allow AHS to replace more obsolete equipment in our facilities with the same capital equipment budgets.
