Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Argentina

Location: Balcarce

Total Budget: $130,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

General Objective

Provide an X-ray equipment and a C-arm to the New Center for Diagnostic Imaging of the Hospital Subzonal of Balcarce.

Specific Objectives

Streamline and improve the quality of inpatient diagnosis and reduce delays in shifts offered to outpatients, expanding service hours to bring the service to the entire population and neighboring towns.

Needs Assessment

This modern X-ray equipment would complement and / or replace the existing one and the C-arm would be used for Traumatology surgeries.

Brief Description of the Project:

The Subzonal Hospital of Balcarce is the only health care provider with clinic and hospital care in the Balcarce district, whose population amounts to 50,000 inhabitants. It has all the specialties: Surgery, Maternity, Medical Clinic, Guard, Laboratory and Intensive Therapy Room. The Municipality with the help of the Hospital Cooperative Association has begun the construction of a New Imaging Diagnosis Center on the property bordering the Guard.

The equipment that is needed to complement and replace the existing one is a C-arm that would be used in trauma surgeries and an X-ray equipment. With both equipment and the recently acquired tomograph, an essential part of the care not only of hospitalized patients and those without social work but also mutualized patients who attend the Health Center would be covered.

The objective of the request for this Grant is to equip this New Diagnostic Imaging Center to provide the city with a place that the citizens of Balcarce can attend without the need to resort to other Diagnostic Centers in the area and that In addition, patients who require it from neighboring towns can be treated in this city.

Number of Beneficiaries: the 50,000 inhabitants of the Balcarce zone.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
