Mt Beauty Hospital Op Shop makes largest donation on record
24 August 2022
The Mount Beauty Hospital Op Shop have made a donation of $73,900 to Alpine Health Mt Beauty for the purchase of a state of the art the digital radiography system. The Konica Aero Digital Reader System will modernise the management of patient X Rays as they can now be processed and managed digitally and referred to specialists or regional centres.
The new system will allow patients to continue to have their X Rays taken closer to home cutting down on travel time as well as reducing the pressure placed on ambulances being used for patient transfers and the emergency department at Albury Wodonga Health.
The purchase of this new system is in line with Alpine Health’s commitment to deliver local services for local people to improve the health outcomes for the Alpine communities, in addition to continually improving integrated sustainable local health services.
Nick Shaw, Alpine Health CEO said “we are incredibly grateful to the Mt Beauty Hospital Op Shop volunteers, their substantial donations allow us to upgrade our technology and improve our service delivery for the local community.”
“On behalf of Alpine Health I’d like to say a big thank you to Mt Beauty Hospital Op Shop for helping us to improve the health and well-being of the Alpine communities.”
