Sterile Processing and Distribution

CMMC Department Ensures Surgical Equipment Safety

An essential hospital support service is the department responsible for cleaning, processing, sterilizing, storing and distributing supplies and equipment. At Central Maine Medical Center, this department is called Sterile Processing and Distribution (SPD).

A core task of the SPD technician is the proper cleaning and care of instruments and equipment. It's a job that requires intensive focus on details.

SPD technicians at CMMC are nationally certified. They know the names and functions of all the instruments used in the operating room, understand anatomy and physiology, and know the mechanisms of disease transmission and infection control.
