Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen announced on Friday, April 20, 2018, that the provincial government will be spending $5.1 million to purchase replace ageing equipment at Health Science Centre, St Boniface General Hospital and Gimli Community Health Centre.
“Manitobans rely on medical equipment that can diagnose illnesses while being reliable, safe and efficient for both practitioners and patients to use,” said Goertzen. “This funding will allow a number of health-care facilities to replace aging equipment, ensuring quality medical care for the patients who use it.”
Goertzen says that the new equipment will help with wait times and will mitigate higher staffing costs because of the older equipment currently in place.
Health Science Centre is slated to receive a new CT Scanner, Gimli Community Health Centre will be adding an x-ray machine and a cardiac catheterization medical system and specialized laboratory analysis equipment are slated for St. Boniface General Hospital.
