Each year, the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) dedicates a week in October (beginning the 2nd Sunday of the month) to recognize the hardworking professionals in central service/sterile processing and their commitment to making a difference in patient care. The week is called International Central Service Week and it is celebrated in a number of different ways across the country.
