Sterilization capacity at the existing surgical facilities will not keep up with the demand as total joint surgery moves to the ASC environment.

“9 trays, plus the size of one of two sterilizers. This illustrates the space issue!”

The remodel, capital, and labor costs of creating the capacity in the existing surgery centers is the financial barrier to these facilities ability to capture the revenue available.


Off-site purpose built facilities dedicated to decontamination, sterilization, and the logistics needed to move these items to the individual surgical facilities is the answer.


Large health systems are already moving to off-site models to create the efficiency and flexibility needed for sterile processing as the capacity needs become strained at the individual facilities.


We can bring the efficiency of the large purpose built SPD facility to individual surgery centers to increase their capacity and revenue opportunity on a per case charge basis.


Off-site models have been used in the US for more than 10 years by large healthcare systems usually based at universities. The regulatory pathway for the process is well established and proven to be safe for patients and efficient for the surgical facilities.
