To advance and continue infection prevention efforts, Delta County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) is now using the Surfacide® Helios™ UV-C technology, which uses ultraviolet light to help prevent the spread of dangerous microorganisms and targets viruses, including COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 to ensure a safer environment. 

The ultra-violet light system is a method for portable antimicrobial disinfection through a non-contact method to all patient areas. The UV-C system was donated from Delta County through CARES Act funds and is meant to help prevent hospital-wide infection, improve conditions for patients and provide the hospital with extra safety measures during the pandemic and beyond.
