Sterile Processing and Distribution: Keeping it clean at BAMC

By Jason W. Edwards Brooke Army Medical Center Public Affairs

Sterile Processing and Distribution at Brooke Army Medical Center at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston provides sterility assurance for all expendable and non-expendable products processed or issued, to include, but not limited to, our patients, operative services, wards, clinics and research facilities within BAMC, Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgery Center, and the Institute of Surgical Research, and all other customers within the San Antonio Market.

They also receive and decontaminate instruments and goods from all patient care areas, providing priority support to BAMC’s operating rooms.

Sterile Processing and Distribution employs 60 personnel over five shifts and is in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provides sterilization of instrumentation through the use of steam or Hydrogen Peroxide Plasma.
