Girl wins robot naming contest

Cedar Rapids (KWWL) - A piece of surgical equipment is a little more more personal thanks to a young Cedar Rapids girl.

Mercy Medical Center held a "Name the Robot" contest for their new daVinci Surgical System.

The winning entry was from 6-year-old Jolee Becker, of Cedar Rapids. Jolee is a first grader at Jackson Elementary School.

Her award-winning entry explained that Dr. Sam stands for daVinci-Robotic-Assisted surgery at Mercy.

Jolee won a behind-the-scenes tour of the Mercy Surgery Center for her family and classmates.
