Philip Health Services receives CT scanner upgrade

The $400,000, 4,200 pound technical machinery was first rolled from a semi to a tilt-bed truck, then to eight big guys who rolled it into the hospital. Helping were Philip hospital head of maintenance Scott Baye and maintenance personnel Dan Walker and Lucas Schofield.

The General Electric 16-Slice Lightspeed Computerized Axial Tomography (CT) scanner was delivered to the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip on Friday, March 28th.

The 14 boxes and crates included the donut-shaped main unit which weighs over 4,200 pounds, or as a delivery supervisor said, "more than your average SUV." The machine and installation comes at a total cost of a little more than $400,000.

The CT scanner will be in general operation by Friday April 4th.
