New Digital X-ray Machine Installed at SMMH


The final piece of imaging equipment funded by the Get Better capital campaign is now fully operational at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Site.

The new Siemens Ysio Max digital X-ray machine is a much-needed tool for improved diagnostics and patient outcomes that captures clearer images with greater detail, which improves accuracy in interpretation and diagnoses.

Not only capable of taking images from a variety of angles with minimal patient movement, the digital X-ray machine uses significantly less radiation, making it safer for all, adds Bubela.

The new digital X-ray machine represents the final piece of imaging equipment installed at SMMH through the Foundation’s Get Better capital campaign. A huge focus of the $6.5 million campaign was a more than $2.5 million investment in the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The campaign funds purchased a new CT Scanner, a digital mammography unit (jointly supported by the Auxiliary to South Muskoka Memorial Hospital), and a new digital Fluoroscopy machine in addition to the X-ray machine.

Equipment costs are entirely funded through donations to our Foundation from the community.
