Each year the departments identify their needs for equipment here at Alexandra Hospital. Whether it be replacement equipment or new equipment, the item once identified goes through a formal process of priority within the organization. This allows for the most pressing needs to be identified. Criteria considered include patient and team member safety, cost, need and other factors.
