Help us name our Mako Robot!

Join us in welcoming the newest addition to our orthopedic surgery team—the Mako™ Robot! But like all great robots—Optimus Prime, Wall-E, C-3PO—Mako needs a name befitting a mechanized hero.

Help us name our robot for a chance to win $500 for the charity of your choice. Names can be submitted from December 9th through December 22nd. You may enter more than once, but may only submit ONE (1) name per entry form. If a name has already been submitted, the form will not accept it again, so be sure to submit your idea early!

Give Mako a Name

The contest will open at 12:01 a.m. on December 9, 2021. Please come back then to help us name our robot!

Contest Terms and Conditions

This contest is open to all ages. Submissions will be accepted from 12:01 a.m. on December 9, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. on December 22, 2021. Participants may submit as many names as they wish, but each entry must be submitted individually. Duplicate entries will not be allowed to ensure there is one (1) undisputed winner.

Once the contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on December 22, 2021, all entries will be presented to a group of Samaritan’s caregivers for consideration. Any submissions that contain inappropriate or hateful language will be automatically rejected. The group of caregivers reserves the right to pick a winner based on its collective preference — no formal scoring system will be used.

The winner will get to select a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to which Samaritan Medical Center (SMC) will make a $500 donation. Only one (1) organization may be chosen to receive the full $500. The donation will be made by SMC on the winner’s behalf and thus may not be claimed by the winner as a tax deduction.

By participating in this contest, you understand and agree that SMC may use any name or designation submitted by you in this contest in connection with the activities, goods or services outlined in the contest, or for any other purpose that SMC may, in its sole discretion, choose to undertake. You acknowledge and agree that any contest submission by you to SMC becomes sole and exclusive property of SMC, which SMC may use in commerce as a trademark or servicemark. You disclaim or convey to SMC any and all rights in and to any name or designation that you submit in the contest, whether to be used in connection with the activities, goods or services outlined in the contest or otherwise. You covenant not to sue SMC and release SMC, it’s agents, affiliates, employees, assigns, or contractors from any and all claims, liability, debts or sums associated with any name or designation that you submit as part of this contest. You also consent to Samaritan using your image and name in any marketing materials, in any medium, related to this contest.
