LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) – The Lebanon VA Medical Center just opened a new facility, that officials say will greatly increase their capacity to sterilize medical equipment. The new sterile processing service facility opened on Monday, and it’s expected to increase productivity by 65 percent.
“What we do is we inspect, we decontaminate, we disinfect, we sterilize, we render an object safe to use, safe to handle, and free from any germ or microorganism that could potentially create an infection,” said Richard Lambdin, Lebanon VA Medical Center’s Sterile Processing Service Chief.
