New Lab Equipment for Regional Hospital
The Cypress Health Region is replacing a centrifuge for their lab services at Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current.
“We use it in the lab and when a specimen is taken we need to spin it before we send it for processing,” said health region CEO Beth Vachon. “It spins lab work.”
This is not a new item for the hospital.
“We’re replacing an existing piece of equipment that has come to the end of its life,” Vachon added.
The cost of the new centrifuge is $7200. Vachon noted they are able to replace it very quickly and there shouldn’t be any interruption to the lab services at the regional hospital.
