The Intuitive da Vinci Xi Robot is the latest addition to the hospital. Robotic-assisted surgery allows surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. Benefits include less pain, less blood loss, less scarring, shorter recovery time, a faster return to normal daily activities and oftentimes better clinical outcomes. 

“This generous gift from the Gilmore Foundation comes at a critical time in advancing the hospital’s surgical program,” says Jamie Rogers, administrator, NMMC Gilmore-Amory. “This single piece of advanced equipment will create more hope and better treatment outcomes for thousands of patients suffering from a variety of issues that can be improved surgically. The best part is that it’s right in our patients’ backyard.” 

The Gilmore Foundation is a private not-for-profit organization serving Monroe County. With the reallocation of its assets from the sale of Gilmore Memorial Hospital, the Foundation’s many years of service and community involvement continues. 

“This pledge directly aligns with our foundation’s tradition of serving humanity,” said Skip Miles, board chairman, Gilmore Foundation. “The Gilmore Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life in our community. This new machine is not only going to improve surgeries for our friends and neighbors, but it will also improve their lives.”
