New York Hospital invests in UVC disinfection technology to help fight infections
Patients and staff at Wyoming County Community Health System (WCCHS) are benefiting from innovative technology that disinfects patient rooms, operating rooms and clinical areas with UVC energy.
The Tru-D device, now part of PDI’s market-leading infection prevention solutions, is a germ-eliminating UVC disinfection robot that has recently been added to WCCHS’s already stringent list of disinfection protocols aimed at protecting patients from serious infections. The Tru-D technology is one way WCCHS is raising the bar when it comes to the level of care it provides to all patients.
Wyoming County Community Health System, located in Warsaw, New York, is the only comprehensive health care provider in the county. It is the largest employer in the county with a workforce of more than 500 dedicated and skilled employees. It offers acute care, long-term care, ambulatory surgery, rehabilitation, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health and more.
“While patient safety has always been a top priority for our facility, we cannot recall a time when it has been more important to help stop the spread of disease and infection in our hospital,” said Mike Corcimiglia, chief operating officer of WCCHS.
