Halyard Health crowned the champion of the second annual Smart-Fold Wrap Race at the 2015 International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) 50th Annual Conference and Expo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Darreona McDowell from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite was declared the fastest sterilization wrapper, beating out Central Service (CS) professionals from across the United States and Canada.
