Chloe the robot joins cleaning team at Stoke Mandeville

Sodexo’s cleaning team at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, part of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, has a new recruit of the robot variety who has been named Chloe by young patients on the children’s ward.

Chloe the robot will be helping the team who keep Stoke Mandeville hospital a clean and safe space for all by ensuring the floors of communal areas, corridors, entrances, and the children’s wards are kept spotless, whilst her human colleagues concentrate on sanitising touch points around the hospital which is crucial to preventing the spread of infections such as COVID-19.

Philip Leigh, CEO healthcare, Sodexo UK and Ireland, said: “Chloe is an exciting new addition to our cleaning team at Stoke Mandeville, reaffirming our commitment to the Trust to bring innovation into the delivery of FM services at the hospital. At Sodexo we understand the importance of patient experience and Chloe will not only support her human colleagues in the provision of a high standard of cleaning and hygiene practice at the hospital, but will also provide some entertainment for the hospital’s younger patients and their carers as they interact with her as she carries out her duties.”

Chloe is a LionsBot robot and is operated through Lions Operating System (LionsOS), software that empowers the robot for optimal performance. Using cutting edge technology in artificial intelligence, a LionsBot robot provides an excellent user experience while placing a strong emphasis on total safety, total security and total solutions from the ground up.
