The mission of the JRMC Foundation is to secure philanthropic gifts that will enhance and support the work of JRMC.

Help Name the Robot

I zap germs, save lives. As part of expanding our infection-fighting team, JRMC wants to add a “germ-zapping” robot called The Xenex LightStrike™. Multi-drug resistant organisms can cause life-threating infections and are a difficult problem to solve with cleaning alone. You can invest in technology that will help zap germs and fight infections. The addition of Xenex Robot to treat patient rooms and other key areas in the facility will help keep patients healthy, prevent infection and save thousands in medical costs. The Xenex pulsed xenon UV disinfection system has been credited by healthcare facilities across the U.S. for helping them reduce their infection rates significantly. Several hospitals have published their C.diff, MRSA and Surgical Site infection rate reduction studies – showing infection rate reductions in excess of 70 percent. The impact on patients is expected to be significant- and it wouldn’t be possible without your compassion and support.

More than 200 donors raised $75,325 for Jamestown Regional Medical Center on Giving Hearts Day. With the exception of designated donations, the money we raised benefits the purchase of this robot.

The Name the Robot coloring and naming contest concluded and provided us with over 200 vibrant pages to narrow down from. Voting for the winning robot name concluded Saturday, Feb. 18th. The winning name will be announced soon.
