X-ray capabilities

Gerehu hospital works to increase X-Ray capabilities

The hospital has been in touch with the South Brisbane Rotary Club for this project.

The team hopes to get this machine in by this year or early next year.

Gerehu Hospital CEO Dr Steven Yennie said this machine would assist greatly with their TB patients.

“As you know, Port Moresby is a hot spot for TB. And an X-Ray machine in Gerehu Hospital will be a lot helpful. If a person comes in with symptoms of TB, we’ll do X-Ray, make diagnosis, and treat them straight,” he said.
