Upgraded Emergency Department Equipment

Helping to Enhance the Patient Experience at Milton District Hospital

(Milton, ON) – Milton District Hospital upgraded two pieces of equipment within its Emergency Department – a GlideScope and Air Puff Tonometer – after receiving funding through the Town of Milton’s Community Fund in 2016.

“We are grateful for these funds to continue providing the best emergency care to our patients using the best available technology,” said Dr. Jane Wilkinson, MDH Associate Chief of Staff. “We will collaborate with the Town of Milton in the future as we expand our hospital services to meet the growing needs of our community.”
