UPMC Mercy Central Sterile Processing
The CSP (Central Sterile Processing) project at UPMC consists of multiple phases and enabling projects at UPMC Mercy. It serves to clean and sterilize all instruments used during surgery for the entire hospital. The existing space was at the end of its useful lifecycle and needed to be renovated. In order for this to happen, a temporary CSP needed to be constructed on the 3rd floor to allow functionality while the renovation of its existing space was underway.
Additionally, build outs for the EVS group, the morgue and evidence storage had to be completed first as the new CSP was going to increase in size.
The new CSP will include:
• New sterilization equipment
• A designated "dirty" and "clean" area
• All new MEP infrastructure
• New finishes
• Specific, "clean and dirty" elevators to distribute the instruments to and from the ORs.
