The Value of Reusables

A strategic supply chain solution, reusable products, including sterile drapes, wrappers, OR towels, Mayo / table covers, AAMI Level 2, 3, and 4 OR gowns, and AAMI Level 1 and 2 isolation gowns can play a critical role in creating a safe, sustainable perioperative environment for the long-term.

Standard Textile restructured our supply chain and manufacturing to support the healthcare industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We added shifts across our operations, from fabric weaving to cut and sew operations, and have supplied hundreds of thousands of OR Gowns and PPE’s to help during this crisis.

In addition to our partnership with AORN and its membership, we have a team of resources available to help with analysis and implementation of a comprehensive reusable textile program.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns. We are here for assistance as you move forward with your needs for your perioperative practice.
