IAHCSMM Membership Votes to Change Association’s Name to Healthcare Sterile Processing Association

From June 22-July 12, 2021, members of the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) cast their votes regarding the proposed name change from IAHCSMM to the Healthcare Sterile Processing Association (HSPA), along with the tagline “Professionals Instrumental to Patient Safety.”

Upon reviewing the certified results from the third-party voting service provider Survey & Ballot Systems, the Association’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce that 82.3% of voting members voted in favor of the name change. A two-thirds “yes” vote by members who voted was needed for the name change to pass.

The switch from IAHCSMM to HSPA will officially take effect January 1, 2022. The Association will continue representing the profession internationally, and certification credentials will remain the same.
