Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and Twin Cities Add Xenex Robots
Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and Twin Cities Hospital are the first to tap into a technology that uses pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV) light to quickly destroy bacteria, viruses, mold and other pathogens that can cause healthcare associated infections (HAI). “While both medical facilities are the only two hospitals in the area to receive an “A” rating for patient safety from the Leap Frog Group, we still wanted to make this capital investment to keep our hospitals equipped with the latest technology”, stated Mitch Mongell, CEO of Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.
“While our hospital infection rates are enviable, we always strive for zero. Zero is the only infection rate acceptable to us. So adding this new technology will make our patient care even safer than it is today”, stated David Whalen, CEO of Twin Cities Hospital.
