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. Sterilmed, a leader in the reprocessing industry, is the latest business to join the Greening the OR® Initiative. Reprocessing single-use medical devices is one of the strategies identified to not only significantly reduce the environmental impact of the OR, but also to reduce supply costs by almost 50 percent. In conjunction with joining the Greening the OR® Initiative, Sterilmed is sponsoring an award for outstanding OR sustainability efforts to be awarded at CleanMed 2014. Hospitals showcasing superior OR sustainability improvements and outcomes are eligible for this honor.

Sterilmed President, Mike Gustafson states: “Utilizing green initiatives and strategies is no longer a choice, rather a necessity in the healthcare sector. Core to our mission, and that of Johnson & Johnson, is helping our customers protect the earth and its natural resources and by joining the Greening the OR Initiative we are proud to continue to fulfill on that promise.”

In addition, operating rooms produce a disproportional amount of waste — between 20 and 30 percent of a hospital’s total waste volume. To help hospitals run more efficient and environmentally-friendly operating rooms, Practice Greenhealth introduced the Greening the Operating Room® Initiative, which helps hospitals reduce environmental impact, reduce costs, increase efficiency, and
