LONG BEACH, CA, April 7 —The novel Coronavirus outbreak has affected millions of people worldwide through personal sickness, overwhelming uncertainty and government regulated lockdowns.  On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization officially declared the outbreak a pandemic effectively shutting down many parts of the public sector. As a result, healthcare systems are bracing for an influx of patients as a result of the disease and will rely heavily on strong partners to assist them during these extraordinary circumstances.

With a strategic emphasis on instrument and linen sterilization services on a long-term or emergency basis, SPSA is well prepared to help its customers handle the Covid-19 crisis. 

“We understand many hospitals are seeing an influx of patients related to Covid-19.  SPSA is able to assist our customers quickly and effectively by remaining true to our core services including a proven offsite processing system of most types of surgical instruments as well as specializing in compliance-oriented services,” said Jennifer Greisen, President of SPSA.  “We are open for business with a full staff, and are committed to assisting hospitals during this time of need so they can focus on solving the crisis one patient at a time.”

SPSA is working with multiple vendors to find a solution to sterilize N95 respirator masks.  Additionally, SPSA is working with hospitals to repurpose reusable surgical gowns and convert them for isolation use.  Both of these initiatives will help protect front-line healthcare workers as they battle this disease.
