BALTIMORE, Md. — The Integrated Pest Management in Health Care Facilities Project has honored The Steritech Group for its outstanding achievement in implementing “green pest management” at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore, Md.) through the practice of defined Integrated Pest Management (IPM) that has eliminated the use of pesticides for managing pests in the facility.

The Integrated Pest Management in Health Care Facilities Project is a partnership between the Maryland Pesticide Network and Beyond Pesticides, in collaboration with Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (MDH2E). The Project, launched in 2006, educates the health care industry about value of IPM.

The Project works with a select group of health care facilities in Maryland and the Washington, D.C. area including Johns Hopkins Bayview, on the adoption of defined IPM whereby the focus is on non-chemical pest prevention and least-toxic pesticides are only used as a last resort.

 “Just as evolving medical technologies advance the care delivered to patients, pest management providers must mitigate pesticide risk to help build healthier environments,” said Rich Ennis, chief operating officer and president of Steritech. “Steritech is proud to partner with Johns Hopkins in revolutionizing their integrated pest management program through Zero Tolerance Pest Prevention and our EcoSensitive System. We take particular pride in the results that have been achieved at Bayview Hospital, where our dedicated Service Specialist Bob Fields has embodied the spirit of environmentally responsible pest prevention and made it his goal to educate others on the process.”
