DANVILLE, Pa. & INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The STI Series 2000 from Biosafe Engineering has been a solution of choice for treating and disposing of regulated medical waste for decades. Geisinger first employed the technology at their flagship campus in Danville, PA, where it has been performing day-in, day-out since 1999. Now, the STI treatment technology has been expanded to their Wilkes-Barre site to meet growing volume requirements.
Geisinger is an integrated health services organization widely recognized for its innovative use of the electronic health record, and the development and implementation of innovative care models including ProvenHealth Navigator, an advanced medical home model, and ProvenCare program. The system serves more than 2.6 million residents throughout 44 counties in central and northeastern Pennsylvania.
Biosafe Engineering is a longstanding technology leader for end of life solutions concerning potentially infectious materials. Its solutions – combining steam treatment, pressure, and in some cases chemicals – are found throughout the world in healthcare, life sciences, and government bio-safety facilities. Its STI Technology is a world-class platform for the treatment of regulated and infectious waste in North America, Europe, and Australia.
Randy McKee, Sales Director of STI Technology for Biosafe comments, “It’s with great pride that we recently installed a second STI Series 2000 treatment system at Geisinger Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre. I take this expansion as a vote of confidence for our solutions and support.”
Al Neuner, VP of Facility Operation, describes the technology choice, “After surveying all of the various technologies available for the destruction of medical waste, we were most impressed by the STI system due to its inherent simplicity. That simplicity has led to years of operation with only planned maintenance of the shredder. A wonderfully reliable and cost effective solution to the medical waste disposal problem.”
