X-ray Equipment is Operational!

New medical technology is operational at Pwoje Espwa Sud. ? Hurray!

During the planning stages for Pwoje Espwa Sud’s new medical clinic, it was our dream to be able to include modern technology. Generous donors made this dream come true with contributions to cover the cost of digital X-ray and ultrasound machines.

Arnie Teppo, an echo technician from Vancouver, WA, and Denise Hinatsu, an x-ray technician from Vancouver island, Canada, along with Dr. Cynthia DeSoi, Espwa’s own Medical Director, worked for more than two years to plan, choose, and implement this project. Our medical staff is being trained, so that they can take full advantage of these important diagnostic tools. This technology will also be beneficial to our visiting medical teams.

Thanks to all who helped with each step along the way!


  1. Before Espwa had a clinic and the wonderful staff they now have, daily visits to the hospital, lab, and doctors’ offices were common and quite expensive.

  2. Thanks for this post. It was very informational. I've been looking into x-ray equipment and this has given me a lot to consider. Thanks!
