Manitobans are set to benefit from a major funding injection in the health care system, it was announced recently.

The provincial government is set to invest $11.9 million in new diagnostic equipment to replace aging equipment nearing the end of its service life at various hospitals across Manitoba.

"Modernizing health equipment is a priority to ensure that health-care facilities continue to offer the best possible care to Manitoba’s families for years to come," said Health Minister and Southdale MLA Erin Selby in a news release. "By replacing old technology, we can make our diagnostic services even better."

Officials say new equipment purchases in the city will include:

• Mass spectrometer and portable ultrasound scanner at St. Boniface Hospital;
• High-resolution digital ultrasound system at CancerCare Manitoba’s St. Boniface Unit;
• CT scanner and C-arm at Concordia Hospital;
• Multi-detector scanner, portable ultrasound machine and dual-detector radiography suite with ceiling-mounted patient lift at Health Sciences Centre;
• CT scanner at Misericordia Health Centre;
• Ultrasound scanner at Victoria General Hospital.
