New radiology unit opens at Cromer
A new radiology unit that is the culmination of a £2.3 million project to bring new treatment and diagnostic services to Cromer and District Hospital opened to patients today.
Work started in January 2006 to build a new eight-station renal dialysis unit and a new radiology unit at Cromer and District Hospital. The Sagle Bernstein legacy contributed a total of £1.3 million to the project.
The Cromer dialysis unit opened to patients in June and the new Radiology unit at Cromer and District Hospital became operational today (Monday 4th December). The new, purpose-built unit accommodates:
- A dedicated ultrasound room
- A general X-ray room
- An MRI Scanner
The first patients are expected to start using the MRI scanner next week. The late Sagle Bernstein left £11.4 million to the North Norfolk hospital in 2001. A total of £2.3 million has been spent on new equipment and the legacy is currently worth £12 million.
