Congressman Joe Courtney Visits Day Kimball Health; Witnesses Impact of New Fluoroscopy Machine Made Possible by Federal Funding


Congressman Joe Courtney of Connecticut's Second District recently visited Day Kimball Health (DKH) to witness firsthand the impact of a newly installed Siemens Agile Max Machine. Allocated funds for the imaging system were secured by Congressman Courtney through the House Appropriations Committee as a fiscal year 2022 community funding request.

The Siemens Agile Max Machine combines fluoroscopy and digital radiography capabilities to perform high-quality diagnostic imaging on patients not previously available at the hospital. This integrated technology improves efficiency by displaying digital images instantly.

During his visit, Congressman Courtney toured the facility, learning how the new machine has allowed patients to receive more procedures keeping them local. He also engaged with healthcare professionals and administrators to understand additional areas where resources are needed to further improve healthcare access in the region. 

“We are exceedingly grateful to Congressman Courtney and the House Appropriations Committee for their support which has enabled us to expand our diagnostic capabilities,” said Kyle Kramer, CEO of Day Kimball Health. “Before the acquisition of the machine, we were limited in our abilities to perform fluoroscopy procedures essential for diagnosing a range of health conditions. We now offer a wide array of advanced procedures enhancing patient care and outcomes.”

The installation of the Siemens Agile Max Machine marks a significant milestone for DKH. The imaging system has not only opened the doors for these new procedures, but the advanced technology of the machine also minimizes radiation exposure for both patients and staff, ensuring safer and more efficient care. 

“With continued support from elected officials, DKH remains dedicated to advancing healthcare accessibility for Northeast Connecticut,” Kramer said.
