SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 16, 2024 – Encore Medical Device Repair today announced that it will introduce participants to its robotic remanufacturing and sustainability program at the annual conference of the Healthcare Sterile Processing Association (HSPA) in Las Vegas, April 21-23. The initiative is a part of the company’s advanced instrument repair program. The annual conference is the sterile processing profession’s leading in-person educational and networking event.

The instrument repair industry is challenged with long repair times, low-quality repairs, high rates of instrument unrepairability, and lack of cost transparency. Encore combines the most qualified technologists in the industry with control of the parts supply chain and a customer-focused repair offering to deliver enhanced reliability and unique customer value. The company’s commitment to elevating the industry from instrument repair to asset stewardship penetrates its operations from instrument repair to staff education. Ultimately, the quality of medical instruments is directly related to the quality of patient care.

“Sterile processing professionals play a key role in protecting the hospital’s operational efficiency and patient safety. I am looking forward to discussing our new robotic sustainability program with the highly competent and hard-working professionals at the conference,“ says Encore President and COO Tom Milano. “The cost of robotic instruments is simply too high, and we want to work with sterile processing and hospital executives to bring these costs down.”

The robotic remanufacturing and sustainability program allows hospitals to either purchase remanufactured robotic instruments or collect certain robotic accessories to obtain credit for instrument repair work.

Encore was formed in 2023 through the merger of several medical instrument repair and parts companies. The company offers a full suite of instrument repair services. Through its collaboration with Restore Robotics, Encore is the only company that can sell FDA cleared remanufactured robotic instruments.
