El Paso Children’s Hospital Gets High-Tech Sterilization Machine in Battle vs. Virus

EL PASO, Texas — The El Paso Children’s Hospital is one of 10 children’s hospitals in the nation to receive a high-level sterilization machine meant to protect against the coronavirus.

“So this piece of UV equipment allows us to have an extra level of disinfection,” said Kristine Tejeda, education manager at El Paso Children’s Hospital. “We actually named him ‘Optimus Prime’ because the kids get really excited when we roll him into the room.”
