New Surgical Equipment at ECM

State-of-the-Art Equipment Improves Surgical Services

The Sterile Processing Department at North Alabama Medical Center has recently acquired a brand new, state-of-the-art low temperature sterilizer.

Sterile processing is responsible for the decontamination and sterilization of all surgical instruments within the hospital. This brand new equipment is safer to use and better for the environment than other methods.

“This machine will allow us to get our sterile surgical instruments in the hands of our highly skilled surgeons much faster, with higher quality than ever before,” said Rhee Perry, Director of Surgical Services.

This new machine will be moved to the new facility next year, and an additional unit will be purchased at that time.
