In 2008-09, the Provincial Government allocated significant funding for upgrades in Diagnostic Imaging equipment throughout the region. As a part of this initiative, the following equipment was purchased: 64-Slice CT Scanners for the Charles S. Curtis Memorial Hospital and the Labrador Health Centre; Digital Mammography Units for all three hospitals and General X-ray Rooms for both the White Bay Central Health Center, Roddickton, and the Labrador South Health Center, Forteau. These advances in equipment translate into tangible improvements in service with increased comfort during testing and reduced wait times for reporting.
