Health care services at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) received a boost on Monday with the donation of an Ultrasound Machine, Anaesthetic Patient Monitor and a Patient Monitor courtesy of the UK-based Rejuvenate Jamaica Hospitals charity organisation.

The Ultrasound Machine is valued at US$15,000 while the other two equipment are valued at £3,057.

The Kingston Public Hospital performed over 7,000 ultrasounds in 2017, therefore an additional machine will improve the hospital's ability to screen more patients thereby reducing the waiting for this service.
