A Broken Bone Really Hurts
Atlanta Memorial Hospital

January, 2011

When Doris, in her early 40’s, tripped over the hose in the backyard she

immediately put her left arm forward to catch her fall resulting in a bad

break in her wrist.  She came to the Emergency Department at Atlanta

Memorial Hospital and immediately an x-ray was performed.  The break

was detected and Doris has recovered nicely. Doris’ x-ray is just one of

the 800-900 x-rays performed each month at Atlanta Memorial Hospital.


Both of our x-ray machines were purchased in early 1996.  One of the

machines needs replacing so we can continue to accommodate patients

such as Doris and all the others because when it is a question of needing

an accurate diagnosis, imaging procedures such  as x-ray examinations are

still indispensable.  Newer digital x-ray equipment would provide higher

quality images with reduced radiation exposure and produce a quicker

turn around time for the referring physician and the patient.


The cost of $531,676. is a huge expense for a rural hospital located in

Northeast, Cass County, Texas, which is not supported by local taxes.
