Sterile Processing Service and Logistics Service  

Change / Revision Date: 

The goal of this Design Guide is to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the design process for VA facilities and ensure a high level of design, while controlling construction and operating costs.

The Sterile Processing Service (Chapter 285) / Logistics Service (Chapter 284) Design Guide was developed as a design tool to assist the medical center staff, VA Central Office (VACO) planners, and the project team in better understanding the choices that designers ask them to make, and to help designers understand the functional requirements necessary for proper operation of the Sterile Processing Service and Logistics Service

This document is intended to be used as a guide and is supplementary to current technical manuals, building codes and other VA criteria in planning healthcare facilities. The Design Guide is not to be used as a standard design; it does not preclude the need for a functional and physical design for each specific project.
