As of Monday, June 18, the new San-i-Pak regulated medical waste disposal system is up and running at PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center! Special thanks to all who worked so hard on installing the system this past week.
Thanks to the efforts of so many people, KMC will now be able to process hazardous waste safely and efficiently. Regulated medical wastes will no longer need have to be packed into containers and shipped south for the processing necessary before disposal. By processing these wastes locally, we'll be maximizing the resources available to serve the health needs of our community.
Way to go team KMC and all our community partners!
