A healthcare network consisting of two hospitals was struggling to build internal pharmaceutical waste programs. Its current provider didn't have the attention of the nursing staff, which is fundamental to the success and sustainability of these programs.
Additionally, the healthcare network had two different vendors for hazardous and universal waste disposal, and both were controlled by different departments within the hospital. Management was frayed on both the front and back end. The network wanted to consolidate outsourced services to one provider with the authority to dispose of pharmaceutical, hazardous, and universal waste as well as to manage onsite generation.
The healthcare network chose Triumvirate Environmental, one of the pre-existing providers of hazardous waste management and disposal, to oversee the program’s implementation and ongoing success.
