Orchard Hospital has a history of taking great care of our community, together we were able to assist with the purchase of two vital pieces of equipment that is used everyday. With a new Hospital on the horizon, it is time to have new equipment so that the ER will be equipped with current diagnostic tools. Ready to help? See our Ways to Support page. Below is the equipment that we raised funds for and were able to purchase with the assistance of our amazing community.

Digital X-Ray Machine
The 64-slice CT scanner can gather a high-resolution image of a heart, brain or both lungs in less than five seconds. A scan of the whole body takes about 30 seconds. The speed of the 64 slice CT scanner has also allowed for the technology to be an alternative to conventional angiography or cardiac catheterization. The procedure is less invasive and produces excellent imaging.
