Fuerteventura has 9 new ultrasound machines

Fuerteventura has 9 new ultrasound machines.

The Ministry of Health allocates more than seven million euros of European funds to the acquisition of ultrasound machines

The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands invested a total of 7,346,846 euros of European funds in 2023 to the renovation of ultrasound machines in the islands' public hospitals.

This item made it possible to acquire 131 new units of this health machinery to improve the resources of the Obstetrics and Gynecology, Intensive Care Medicine, Radiodiagnosis, Cardiology and other medical-surgical specialties of the SCS hospitals.

This new equipment, by increasing the diagnostic capacity of the healthcare service, has facilitated the early detection of various pathologies with the consequent application of faster and more effective treatments.

With regard to their distribution among the public hospitals of the SCS, 31 ultrasound machines were assigned to the Nuestra Señora de Candelaria University Hospital Hospital and 28 to the Canary Islands University Hospital Complex, 28, both in Tenerife.

As for Gran Canaria, a total of twenty new devices were installed at the University Hospital of Gran Canaria Dr. Negrín and another nineteen at the Insular-Materno Infantil University Hospital Complex.

Thirteen were referred to the Health Services Management of the Health Area of La Palma; Fuerteventura and Lanzarote nine each; and those of La Gomera and El Hierro, one per Management.

Ultrasound Scanners in Primary Care

In addition, the Ministry of Health has acquired 180 ultrasound machines for distribution in health centres on all the islands. A total of 5,442,660 euros have been allocated to this measure, contemplated in the Comprehensive Strategy for Primary and Community Care, +AP, financed with Next Generation funds.

With the incorporation of this equipment, family medicine and paediatric professionals can use ultrasound as another tool for exploration in their clinical practice and, in this way, guide their diagnoses more appropriately, which has a positive impact on the quality of care provided to the population.

European Funds

This investment has been carried out within the framework of the Assistance for the Recovery and Cohesion of the Territories of the European Union (REACT-EU), launched as part of the European Union's response to the COVID-19 pandemic to support the incorporation of additional personnel into the public health systems of the member countries.
