Mbeya referral hospital installs modern digital X-ray machine

THE Ministry of Health, Community Development, gender, Children and Elders has installed a modern, digital X-Ray machine at Mbeya referral hospital that is expected to beef up services as the old one is dilapidated.

The machine was presented to the hospital’s management by Eng Onesmo Haule who installed at the hospital’s X-Ray unit and issued instructions on how best to operate it.

Receiving the equipment, the hospital’s senior medical officer Dr Gloria Mbwile thanked the government, saying the current machine was very old and did not work properly as expected.

He said the new machine will assist to beef  up health services in the hospital.

She said: “We will ensure we take care of the machine by servicing it from time to time so that it lasts long and I appeal to the staff at the X-Ray unit to offer better services to patients.”

Dr Gloria said the machine  will now embrace the digital system.

Presenting the machine on behalf of the Health ministry, Eng Haule called upon the hospital’s to maintain it so that it lasts longer.

Without mentioning the machine’s real cost, Eng Haule said it is among  the very expensive equipment  hence when it breaks down a lot of money is needed for repair.
