Walkent Central Sterilization Facility
Wolverine remodeled an existing 26,000 square foot warehouse at 2925 Walkent Court in 2005 to house a hospital’s off-site sterilization process. The project cost was $2.8 million, with the mechanical portion totaling $1.2 million. The hospital ships their surgical equipment to the new facility where it is sterilized and then shipped back to all the various medical care locations.
The sterilization process requires high temperatures and high pressures which are supplied by the boiler. The remodel included separate boilers, air handling units, and water conditioning for the sterilization process.
