The X-Ray Replacement Project will improve X-ray and fluoroscopy systems at Salem and West Valley Hospitals as they reach their end-of-life. The project starts this month with Salem Hospital X-ray Room 7 and the West Valley Hospital Fluoroscopy Room,

Salem Hospital X-ray Room 7 decommission started on April 4, and runs through mid-July.

  • No interruption in services is expected.
  • Construction containment extends into the patient hallway, but we don’t expect any changes in hallway traffic.
