Thanks to the generous support of the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation and their donors, the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA), has purchased a new Digital X-ray suite to replace its aging equipment at the Clinton Public Hospital site.
In order to install this new equipment, outpatient X-ray exams at the Clinton Public Hospital will not be available for six to eight weeks starting on November 12, 2019.
Outpatients requiring X-rays during this time period are asked to visit another hospital. Hours of operation at the Seaforth Community Hospital site of the HPHA have been extended from Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. to accommodate the extra volume.
Inpatients and Emergency Department patients who require X-rays during this time will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. In some instances X-rays may be provided by a portable unit or by transferring the patient to another hospital site.
With the installation of the new state-of-the-art X-ray equipment, patients will benefit from higher quality images which in turn facilitates accuracy in interpretation and diagnosis. The new equipment will also improve efficiency as exams will be performed in a shorter amount of time.
Appreciation is extended for your patience and cooperation as this work is completed.
