From our preadmission online system through to the latest in medical, surgical and diagnostic equipment and hospital upgrades, Burnside Hospital, your community not-for-profit Hospital, with your ongoing support will continue to invest in clinically appropriate technology so we can provide safe and contemporary care for every patient.
We are in the process of placing an order for a NIM Nerve Simulator that will support our Breast Surgeons undertaking thyroid surgery. In addition, we have ordered a Faxitron Breast tissue analysis machine that can test samples of breast tissue intra operatively. This has a great benefit to the patients meaning they spend less time under anaesthetic.
We also acknowledge our community’s support at this difficult time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Burnside Hospital is slowly ramping up its activity in line with the advice of our Medical Executive Committee and that of SA Health, the Federal Government and our key Visiting Medical Specialists. Your gift is more important now than ever as the Hospital slowly gets back to operating at normal capacity.
