The Jules Hosanski Sterile Supplies Department prepares approximately 50,000 kits a year. We employ 25 regular workers who sterilize and prepare the kits and trays, operate gas and plasma sterilization, steam sterilization, etc.
With Shaare Zedek becoming one of Israel’s largest surgical centers, efficient and safe sterilization has become crucial. The new array works as an advanced assembly line, using robots and fully supervised by a sophisticated computer system.
There is complete separation between the three work areas: the first area receives the dirty equipment, treats and washes it. The second area sterilizes and sorts the equipment, and the third area packs, stores and distributes the now sterile equipment.
