Keystone State Association of Sterile Processing Professionals

About Us

The Keystone state Association of Sterile Processing Professionals (KASPP) chapter was formed in 2005. The chapter’s membership is made up of members and associate members totaling a membership of over two dozen in 2011. We are proud to have representation of over a half dozen healthcare facilities in our surrounding area.

The chapter has been awarded the Steris Small Chapter of the Year award in 2009, 2011 and 2015. The chapter continues to grow and offer current, relative, and applicable education sessions each month, except July, August, and December, and is in the ninth year of offering a six credit all day educational seminar in the fall.

KASPP members enjoy the ability to easily network with others in the profession and keep informed of new innovations and trends in the healthcare field.


To create an environment where we build on our knowledge of the Sterile Processing techniques, technologies, and our ever-changing arena in order to facilitate safe patient care.
