WINCHESTER — Thanks to our generous donors, WDMH has two new ultrasound machines. The new machines arrived at the hospital on May 30 and are up and running! 

The ultrasound machines have the latest technology and ensure that ultrasound care can continue without interruption at WDMH. Technologists tell us that the quality of images from the new machines are spectacular. Technology has advanced to a point where things that were too small to be identified before can now be seen. 

“We are so thankful to our community for supporting our efforts to bring these new ultrasound machines to WDMH,” notes Kristen Casselman, Managing Director of the Foundation. “When you support the purchase of equipment like this, you, your friends, family, and neighbours all benefit. Everyone wins!” 

Co-Managing Senior Technician Denis Arsenault agrees. “We are so happy to finally have these units in the department. This is a great moment for everyone in the community. And, of course, it would not be possible without the continued support from the Foundation and generous donors. Thank you again to everyone for making this happen.” 

The cost of the new machines is $232,307.74. They replace units that were 10 years old. In the past 10 years, almost 70,000 ultrasounds have been done at WDMH, with over 8,100 procedures in the last year alone.
