Sterilmed joins Practice Greenhealth’s Greening the OR® Initiative.

Medical device reprocessing company supports sustainability in the operating room.

Practice Greenhealth announced today that Sterilmed has signed on as a supporter of one of the non-profit’s major initiatives focused on greening the operating room.
