WINCHESTER — A new portable x-ray machine valued at more than $190,000 is benefiting patients at Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
The new unit comes courtesy of a recent $191,675.47 donation from the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. It provides the latest technology and can be brought right to the bedside.
“We are so grateful to our volunteers,” says Team Leader, Shirley Rose. “The mobile unit allows us to go to patients who are too ill to come to the department. It provides instant images for physicians to review and a reduced amount of radiation for patients. And it’s ergonomically friendly for our technologists.”
The Auxiliary raised funds through a community dance, bridge clubs, the Gift Shoppe and much more.
“We are proud to support our local hospital,” notes Peter Sorby, Auxiliary President. “And we thank the many community members who have supported our fundraising efforts to make this possible.”
The old x-ray machine it replaced has been donated to Haiti.
