Xenex Healthcare Services announces it has changed its name to Xenex Disinfection Services.
“We changed the company name to better describe our product offering and company strategy,” says Morris Miller, CEO of Xenex. “The most important step in infection control begins with a clean environment and that’s what Xenex’s room disinfection system accomplishes. In just 5 to 10 minutes per room, our portable ‘robot’ can eliminate the deadly microorganisms and superbugs that cause infections. We have conclusive proof that hospitals utilizing Xenex’s room disinfection system are experiencing a cleaner and therefore a safer environment.”
Founded in 2008, Xenex has quickly become one of the leaders in the room disinfection industry. Innovative hospitals throughout the U.S. are using Xenex’s patented, pulsed xenon UV light room disinfection system to quickly destroy viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores in the patient environment without contact or chemicals. Uniquely designed for ease of use and portability, a hospital’s environmental services staff can operate the Xenex device without disrupting hospital operations. A Xenex device can disinfect over thirty (30) rooms per day at a cost of approximately $3 per room, allowing hospitals to use the system continuously to reduce contamination levels throughout their facilities.
Nearly 25 percent of the 18 facilities listed in the 2013-14 U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of Best Hospitals use Xenex’s room disinfection system. The magazine annually publishes a Best Hospitals list after evaluating the performance of nearly 5,000 medical centers in 16 medical specialties across the country on their performance in areas such as hospital reputation, patient survival rates and patient safety information. To make the Honor Roll, a facility must rank near the top in at least six specialties. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, a Xenex customer, was ranked the No. 1 hospital for cancer care.
