Hauppauge, NY – January 10, 2017 – Crosstex, a division of Cantel Medical Corp., is pleased to announce the recent hire of Mark Duro, who will join the team as director of clinical education following the recent retirement of Chuck Hughes. With world-class education at the forefront of the company’s mission, Duro’s primary role will focus on providing continuing education experiences, assisting acute care facilities to comply with Joint Commission, CMS and AAMI standards and curriculum development for all Crosstex medical training programs.
“I was attracted by the company’s dedication to delivering innovative infection prevention products, services and solutions for patients, caregivers, and other healthcare providers,” Duro said. “I believe that teaching people how to apply infection prevention principles to healthcare, their facilities, and even their lives, is the best multiplier to truly create change.”
Duro has 26 years experience in the sterile processing field. Most recently, he was the director of Sterile Processing Operations at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts and the vice president of the Massachusetts Chapter of Central Service professionals.
Duro has been a member of the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) since 1992 and is one of 34 Fellows within the organization. For the past six years, Duro has been an IAHCSMM-approved instructor, and in 2015 he was appointed to the IAHCSMM’s Executive Board. In 2016, Duro was named president-elect. Also, he has presented at more than 75 educational sessions at various chapter meetings and health care conferences throughout the US, Canada and abroad.
Jackie Beltrani, vice president of marketing, stated, “We are looking forward to Mark applying his experience and communication skills to develop and teach curriculum that will help our customers provide quality outcomes. Crosstex continues to strive for the highest level of patient safety through education, products and best practices.”
