Passavant Area Hospital is getting a second Tru-D UVC Disinfection Robot thanks to a $100,000 donation from the Howard and Vera Million Trust.

Passavant Foundation Executive Director Pam Martin says the Howard and Vera Million Trust Foundation’s generosity has made a tremendous impact at the hospital.

Martin looks back at the previous Million Trust donation to Passavant, totaling around $4.5 million, made almost a year ago.

“Previously the family, through a bequest, had given 320 acres of farmland and one-million-dollars for our behavioral health unit. This most recent gift is again from the trust and part of its last and final distribution,” says Martin.

Passavant Hospital introduced its first Tru-D Smart UVC Disinfection Robot on March 30th. Martin says getting the funds for a second robot makes “for a great addition at the hospital” to keep patients and staff safe.

The Millions farmed their entire lives in Greene, Scott and Morgan Counties. Howard Million was also the founder and president of the former Roodhouse Savings and Loan Association.
