Kaitaia Hospital's X-ray Department now features state-of-the-art equipment

Kaitaia Hospital's X-ray Department has undergone a complete overhaul and now features state-of-the-art equipment and scenic images by local artists adorning its walls.  

The recent renovations to the Department by Te Whatu Ora include the installation of MOBILETT Elara Max and Ysio MAX equipment, which, compared to the previous equipment, provides increased image quality and faster x-ray times and lower radiation doses. 

Whangārei and Bay of Islands Hospitals have also had equipment upgrades, and Dargaville Hospital is also due to have new equipment installed later this year. 

Te Whatu Ora Radiology manager Andrew Howes said these state-of-the-art facilities and equipment would hopefully decrease wait times and help attract and retain the best talent, further improving the region's patient experience and health outcomes. 

The radiology department features Northland landscape photography kindly gifted by photographers Ryan Fatalla and Grant Birley. 

“We are extremely grateful for the artwork, it helps us provide a uniquely Northland environment for our patients to enjoy.”
