JFK Receives Mobile Digital X-Ray Machine
The management of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center, in collaboration with Orange Liberia Foundation, has officially commissioned a Care Stream CR System (Computerized Radiography System) with mobile/portable X-ray machine at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, held at the Imaging Suite in the Department of Radiology, the Director of Orange Liberia Foundation and Orange Digital Center, Sara Elizabeth Buchanan, said she was very delighted for the Foundation to form part of the life-saving fund drive for JFK Medical Center.
“I came here as a patient a few months ago and touring the hospital made me feel like doing something exceptional for JFK,” Buchanan said, while joining hands with Dr. Brown and Orange-Liberia CEO, Jean Marius Yao, for the ribbon cutting.
Also making brief remarks at the ceremony was the Chief Executive Officer of Orange-Liberia, Jean Marius Yao, who said that the Orange-Liberia family is grateful to be a part of the life-saving process in Liberia.
Receiving the mobile digital X-Ray machine on behalf of the radiology department, the Manager of the Radiology department, Marie B. Knuckles, said the digital X-ray machine will help significantly in producing better quality images. She said, also, it would enable copies of X-ray results to be put on CD Disc for preservation and to be presented to patients.
Meanwhile, the CEO of the JFK Medical Center, Dr. Jerry Fahnloe Brown, revealed that about 5 years ago the department of radiology was renovated with the hope that one day a benevolent giver, like Orange-Liberia Foundation, would come in to the help of the medical center with such a modern digital mobile X-ray machine.
“It is a boom to our radiology department and also a relief to our most desiring patients, mostly in the ER Trauma,” the CEO asserted.
Dr. Brown said the JFK Hospital family is very pleased with the donation of a mobile digital X-ray machine to the medical center.
