Carlos Otis Clinic Announces New X-Ray Digital Radiography
Thanks to the generous donation from Lammie Williams and family, the Carlos Otis Clinic now boasts a new digital x-ray system. Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images.
Ambulance and Medi-flight Services
Thanks to generous contributions, the Clinic owns a 2009 Ford Lifeline Superliner Ambulance that is equipped with the most advanced mobile life support equipment available.
Stratton Mountain Rescue operates the ambulance year round transferring critically ill or injured patients from the Clinic to local hospitals. Staffed by volunteer members of the Stratton Ski Patrol, Stratton Mountain Rescue also provides 911 emergency response service to the wider Stratton community. Stratton Mountain Rescue responded to emergencies in the towns of Stratton, Winhall, and Londonderry.
Immediate helicopter transport is facilitated by DHART, Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital’s Air Response Team in Lebanon, New Hampshire, as well as the Albany Medical Center’s Med Flight operation in Albany, New York.
The Carlos Otis Clinic is certified and equipped for Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), which means we are able to provide urgent treatment to cardiac arrest patients as well as those experiencing other life threatening medical emergencies.
The Clinic is outfitted with most of the medical machinery and devices you would find in an advanced hospital setting. These include a state-of-the-art X-Ray unit, a C-Arm, or fluoroscope, defibrillator, monitoring equipment, and aneroid blood pressure wall units.
The Clinic’s outstanding facilities and physical plant are thanks in large part to gifts made by our many generous supporters, friends and benefactors, including significant grants awarded us by
The Stratton Foundation.
From fractures to life-threatening events, from ear aches to stomach aches, from sore throats to sore muscles, our patients benefit from the highest level of care, right here at the base of Stratton Mountain.
