CARDIOLOGY PACEMAKER/ DEFIBRILLATOR DATABASE
This database enables the secure storage of all patients’ pacemaker and defibrillator testing results and pacemaker programs, tracking our patients and supporting planning of elective replacement times for pacemakers and defibrillators, ensuring our Cardiology Service continues its world-class care.
PATIENT FLOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Patient flow management is key to effective hospital operations and optimal patient care. It has a fundamental association with patient access / bed occupancy and essential to our ability to meet future 4HR emergency admission patient care commitments. This technology will dramatically help improve our patient care experience in future years.

Muriel and Les Batten Foundation for their ongoing generous support of the Hospital with a $265,000 gift to fund a Mobile X-Ray Unit and C-Arm Fluoroscopy Unit.
The Mobile X-ray Unit will be used at a patient’s bedside when they are too unwell to move and the C-Arm Mobile Fluoroscopy Unit produces a live x-ray image feed that is displayed on monitors to guide surgeons during a wide range of surgical procedures.
