An Update on the X-Ray Equipment 

Thank you to our donors!

We are pleased to report that the X-Ray Machine has been purchased - thanks to our generous donors!


This remarkable tool allows us to see inside the body, without the need for surgery. Having an X-ray machine is the standard of care for every hospital, including here at WDMH. In fact, every year, an average of 17,000 X-rays are taken at WDMH – with over 10,000 patients having one done in the last three years alone!



What types of problems can X-ray tests diagnose?

  • Injuries such as broken bones and bowel obstructions
  • Diagnosis of conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and heart failure
  • Diagnosis of lung conditions such as pneumonia, emphysema, and lung cancer

How is the new X-ray machine already helping patients? 

  • The new technology produces clear, concise, top-quality images, helping doctors to make a diagnosis
  • Patients are exposed to a lower dose of radiation
  • Advances in design allow for more flexibility, so the patient can be moved according to their individual needs
  • Tests are completed more easily and quickly, with more comfort for the patient
  • The new machines also move easier, meaning less strain on the backs and shoulders of staff
  • Better for the patients. Better for the technologists. Better for the community.

How much did the new X-ray machine cost?

The total cost was $363,648.85.
