Commentaires : This machine as used at the Western Hospital in Alberton, Prince Edward Island. The Western Hospital had its origin in 1944 when the Albion Terrace Hotel was purchased for the purpose of establishing hospital service in Alberton. Much remodelling was needed and when that was completed the first hospital west of Summerside had fifteen beds. In January of 1945 the first patient was admitted with Sister John the Baptist becoming the first administrator of the hospital. Within a few months the hospital was enlarged and in 1947 an addition was built to the south end of the hospital. This extension housed a new maternity department, a children's ward, laboratory, x-ray department, surgery, chapel, and an enlarged kitchen. The hospital now had approximately thirty beds. The hospital was officially opened on August 18th, 1948 by the then Lieutenant Governor of PEI; J.A. Bernard.
