Install Large X-Ray Machine.
Tho Physicinns and Surgeons hospital
has just completed the installation of a
largo new X-ray machine which will
add greatly to tho efficiency of their
already well equipped hospital. Tho
X-ray is recognized ns one of the great
est Scientific discoveries for the treat
ment of many diseases and ailments and
the one installed is of the most modern
design and is equipped with all modern
appliances. The hospital hus made a
marked growth since its organization
but a few years ago and this has been
duo to the fact that nothing was spurcd
to make it one of the best in the state
and the best in western Nebraska. It
has handled a large numbor of patients
and they have nil gone away satisfied
with the treatmeht that they had re
ceived and with words of praise for tho
hospital staff and the corps of nurses.
With the addition of the new machino
they are now better equipped to handle
patients -and it is something that should
command tho uttention of everyone, for
hone knows just when he will need a
hospital and want the best.
