September 11, 2007 — STERIS Corp. announced that its Board of Directors has named Walter M. Rosebrough Jr., 53, president and chief executive officer, effective Oct. 1, 2007 and has elected Mr. Rosebrough to the Company’s Board effective that date.

As announced previously, Les C. Vinney, 58, STERIS’s president and chief executive officer since July 2000, will transition from this role on October 1, 2007 and thereafter continue to serve as a special advisor to the Company until his retirement in 2009.

Rosebrough has spent more than 20 years in the healthcare industry in a series of senior management positions. He served as president and chief executive officer of the Hill Rom Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hillenbrand Industries Inc.

Rosebrough was executive vice president of Hillenbrand Inc. when, in 2000, he left the company to lead Vasocor Inc., a Credit Suisse First Boston-funded start-up healthcare company, as president and chief executive officer. The company was focused on the development of a non-invasive medical device to enable early detection of atherosclerosis. Since early 2005, Rosebrough has served as the president and chief executive officer of Coastal Hydraulics Inc., a private company. Coastal Hydraulics is a provider of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, equipment and services used in industrial, marine and mobile equipment applications.

Rosebrough earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Kettering University (formerly the General Motors Institute) in Flint, Michigan, and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, in Palo Alto, California.

He is currently on the board of Joerns Healthcare, a privately held manufacturer of patient handling and wound management products and services.
