The Healthcare Sterile Processing Association (HSPA) is the premier association representing Sterile Processing (SP) professionals worldwide. Because SP professionals are responsible for cleaning, decontaminating, sterilizing, and distributing medical and surgical instrumentation, they are among the most vital contributors to the delivery of safe, high-quality patient care. For more than 60 years, HSPA (formerly IAHCSMM) has been providing these professionals with the broadest range of certification and continuing education offerings available, along with the unsurpassed support that only a full-service membership organization can bring.
