An investment of £2 million is to be made to create a state-of-the-art diagnostic scanning department at Benenden Hospital.

12th May 2015

An investment of £2 million is to be made to create a state-of-the-art diagnostic scanning department at Benenden Hospital.

The money will pay for a new on site CT scanner and an MRI scanner, which will be housed in the hospital's new imaging department, which is soon to be refurbished as part of a £45 million redevelopment of the hospital itself.

The equipment will help the hospital to provide rapid and efficient diagnosis and assist in the management of health conditions, across many medical specialities.

The new facilities are expected to come into use in December next year, as the hospital redevelopment nears completion. They will benefit Benenden Personal Healthcare members, who form the majority of patients who use the hospital, but will also be available to medically insured and self-funding private patients- and possibly some NHS patients too. The investment is part of the hospital's plans to become a centre of excellence in the local area.

Funding for the new imaging equipment is being provided by the health and wellbeing provider Benenden who have almost 900,000 members across the UK. Benenden Hospital is their flagship hospital.

John Giles, Benenden Hospital's Medical Director and Consultant Radiologist, said: "This investment will allow us to innovate in line with best practice and medical advancements. It will help us to achieve our aim of becoming a leading diagnostic centre in the South East.

"Once our new equipment is installed and the imaging department has been refurbished we will have a state-of-the-art imaging suite which will be able to deliver a rapid diagnostic service to our members and the local community."
