Our Approach

SPSA works to meet or exceed standards set by organizations such as AAMI, ANSI, AORN, ASHRAE, and several others. Our production begins in a segregated room established specifically for soil receiving followed by full decontamination. After washing and thermal disinfection, all items are passed into a controlled access room dedicated to clean inspection, preparation, assembly, and packing, followed by sterilization in our large capacity pass-through steam sterilizers. After sterilization, all items are staged in our quarantine area for cool down. Once complete, all processes are reviewed by our Quality Assurance team and only released to shipping if all parameters and procedures are met. To complete our process, all items are carefully inspected before being issued to final pouching and cart loading followed by delivery back to our client. SPSA is committed to assisting clinics, surgery centers and hospitals with off-site instrument processing, either long or short-term. As added value to our program, SPSA self-distributes all products via our own fleet and distribution team, and SPSA provides transport carts clean as well as dirty transport as part of our complete closed loop service.

Our Story

SPSA is comprised of a single processing 30,000 square foot facility in Long Beach, California. Over a span of more than 25 years, legacy generations of our organization have processed reusable surgical packs, and more recently, procedural or surgical instruments.

Today our SPSA business is split nearly 50/50 between reusable surgical packs and client owned instrument processing. The detailed operating procedures developed through extended research and validation by our predecessors remain intact, which are based on recommendations from the leading textile and instrument processing associations, as well as guidance and regulations established for us by the FDA.
