Push Mangat, interim medical director at ABMU, said: "We welcome this investment from the Welsh Government in supporting the infrastructure within our Health Board with both medical and IT equipment. We believe it will have a significant contribution on improving patient safety in many ways."
Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend will also receive around half a million pounds which will provide new equipment including patient monitors.
Announcing the funding, Welsh Health Minister Lesley Griffiths, said: "Delivering safe, sustainable, high-quality NHS services means having access to the latest technology on wards, so that staff can provide better, more integrated care. I'm delighted to announce the funding."
