Wait times expected to drop with new ultrasound machines in Guysborough, N.S.

ANTIGONISH, N.S. - Officials with the Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority are welcoming news the Nova Scotia government will provide emergency funding to purchase two new ultrasound machines.

The province has indicated it will pay for 75 per cent of the cost for the new units at St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigonish.

The actual dollar amount of the provincial commitment isn't being disclosed at this time.

The hospital has been working with just one ultrasound since April after two aging units were decommissioned after 10 years of service.

Authority CEO Liz Millett says having the two additional machines will significantly reduce wait times.

With one machine operational it was pushing back wait times into early next year.

Millett says the St. Martha's Hospital Auxiliary has offered to cover the remaining 25 per cent cost for the two machines.
