Modernization of equipment:

Purchase of a mini C-Arm

  • Used for hands, wrists, ankles and collarbones surgeries.
  • With this purchase, more than 400 to 600 surgeries will be done each year at our Hospital.

Purchase of a pediatric colonoscope

  • Allows more precise endoscopic exams, as much on children as on adults.
  • It prevents the population from having to travel elsewhere for this kind of exam.

Purchase of 2-position support

  • Provides more precise positioning of the upper limbs during surgery.
  • Post-surgery recovery is less painful for the patient.
  • Precision of the intervention allows it to be performed quicker.
  • Promotes better access to the surgical tray, which increases the number of surgeries.

Purchase of a Sentinel Lymph Node Device

  • Has made breast surgery available at the hospital since July 2018.
  • Allows the population better access to care in close proximity to their residence.
