A brand new, state-of-the-art X-Ray machine has been installed at the Ambergris Hope Clinic. The sophisticated piece of equipment will not only serve the general public at the clinic, but it will also assist the Hyperbaric Chamber located onsite.
Abner Bacab, manager of the Hyperbaric Chamber at the clinic, welcomes the addition to their medical facility. “Having an X-Ray machine will definitely enhance the services offered at the clinic. For any severe injuries that may require x-ray examinations before they can be treated, they can now be done here in San Pedro at our facilities,” said Bacab.
With the incorporation of such an advanced machine to the clinic, a well -trained technician has also come on board to oversee and operate it. Registered nurse Lisette Graniel explained to The San Pedro Sun the uses and flexibilities of the medical tool.
The services of the X-Ray machine are also available after working hours for emergency cases. It was mentioned that the other medical facilities on the island can also benefit from its services at any time during an emergency.
