Carestream Health Wins Orders For Eleven DR Systems In Scotland


March 30, 2009 - Carestream Health has won orders to supply a total of 11 DR systems to Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Fife Health Boards, building further on the company’s growth trend in Europe.

Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Board are currently completing the building of two new, purpose designed Ambulatory Care Hospitals in and around Glasgow - the Victoria Infirmary on the south side of the city and Stobhill Hospital on the north. Carestream Health has received an order to install three KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR7500 systems at the Victoria Infirmary and a further three DR7500 systems and a KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR3500 system at Stobhill Hospital.

The new Victoria will be one of the largest hospitals in Scotland and is expected to treat around 400,000 patients annually when it opens later this year, while the £100 million Stobhill Hospital will also provide state-of-the-art health facilities for the people of Glasgow. Both projects are key components of the overall modernisation of Glasgow’s acute hospitals.

Fife Health Board will install two KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR7500 systems at the Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline and one system each in Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy and the new St Andrews Memorial Hospital in St Andrews.

The new-generation KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 7500 is designed to provide both health boards with the ultimate in digital radiography flexibility. Their modular components can operate as a single or dual detector system, and will allow configuration of the DR system to fit space, applications, workflow and budget.
