The Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) recently received the donation of a Portable Xray machine from FitPart Fund Administration Services Limited. FitPart made the donation, valued at US$57,075.00, in an effort to aid the National COVID-19 Relief Strategy.

The CMDR.C.120.60.S is a complete portable digital radiography system that offers superior image resolution for diagnostic imaging. This system includes a tethered digital detector (DR) and laptop mounted on a two-wheel, stainless steel stand for easy mobility and storage. The compact design weighs only one hundred forty-seven pounds (147lbs) making it easy to transport between sites and sets up for operation in less than 1 minute. The system allows for Image acquisition in less than ten (10) seconds, enhancing workflow in clinical areas.

Making the donation on behalf of FitPart was company representative Andrea Bethell. FitPart and its founders/principals/investors are Brazilians, with more than 25 years of experience in the International Financial and Capital markets. Receiving the donation on behalf of the Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) and Princess Margaret Hospital was Anthone Ward PhD, Director Shared Services PHA, who worked with Ms. Bethell to make the donation a reality.

Ward expressed the sincere gratitude felt by PMH staff for such a generous and timely donation. The portable Xray machine will help to improve workflow and the patient experience in key areas of the hospital including the Special Pathogens Unit and Legacy Units where it will assist in the treatment of COVID-19 positive patients.
