Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: Help fund a UV Robot for Peace Arch Hospital

Help fund a UV Robot for Peace Arch Hospital

For a limited time, all gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 by a generous matching donor!

Manjit Lit and Family have made a $100,000 matching gift to buy a critically important piece of equipment. They are challenging you, and our community, to donate the remaining funds to buy a life-saving machine that will help kill viruses like COVID-19.

You know that germs in a hospital can be deadly. And with a potential second wave of COVID-19 cases this fall, it’s essential to keep our hospital as clean as possible. That’s why we need an Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) Robot. Think of it as a germ-zapping robot. It kills viruses, bacteria and fungi. And it will help get rid of highly-contagious illnesses like C.Diff or COVID-19.

Even after a deep cleaning with bleach and other disinfectants, the UVGI robot can reach and eliminate any remaining harmful bacteria and viruses. Every single day, this could save a patient’s life. This powerful light can kill microbes that linger on surfaces even after a traditional cleaning with bleach or hydrogen peroxide. Best of all, we can use the robot in the ICU, in PAH Foundation Lodge, in operating rooms, and many other critical areas of the hospital.

The benefits to patients include:

  • Decreased risk of hospital-acquired infections
  • Decreased patient length-of-stays
  • Better standard of care and patient outcomes

COVID-19 threatens us all, but this germ-zapping robot can help protect Peace Arch Hospital. It will help save lives. Please, help this campaign with a generous gift so that we can buy the UVGI robot together today.

"I hope that others will join with me in this matching gift challenge today. Peace Arch Hospital needs our support to purchase this expensive, life-saving machine. Together, we can step up to help.”
