Meet Mia! da Vinci Robot Name Selected
Recently Silver Cross announced the “Name the Robot” contest winner. The new name for the $2 million, state-of-the-art surgical system at Silver Cross Hospital, is Mia—minimally invasive approach. Tinley Park resident Suzanne Mitchell submitted the name during the community Housewarming Celebration for the new Hospital in February 2012. Mitchell along with more than 8,500 area residents had an opportunity to see Silver Cross’s new da Vinci Surgical System before offering their name recommendations.
Mitchell submitted “Mia”, which she says is an acronym for minimally invasive approach. “I had heard that Silver Cross was going to be offering more minimally invasive surgery at the new hospital so I immediately thought of the name after seeing the robot,” says Suzanne Mitchell. “The hospital is so beautiful and this new equipment will be such a benefit for patients.” The Silver Cross Procedural Care Unit Staff chose the name after sorting through thousands of submissions.
