Healthcare

SUCCESS STARTS WITH SCIENCE.

Orkin has a history of proven solutions in the healthcare industry. So, we know that it takes a scientific approach to help provide effective treatment in sensitive healthcare facilities like yours.

PATIENT SAFETY COMES FIRST.

Our comprehensive pest control approach relies on proactive techniques grounded in scientific research. We can help your facility meet Joint Commission requirements, minimize the risk of chemical exposure, and reduce pest activity. We will also train your staff on proper tactics for helping prevent pests.

YOUR SATISFACTION IS OUR PROMISE.

At Orkin, we understand the urgency that comes with pests in healthcare facilities. Our Triple Guarantee promises rapid response to help protect you from the pests that threaten your facility’s operation and reputation.

A.I.M.®

An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program can help protect your patients and your facility from all kinds of pests while minimizing the need for chemical treatments. Our A.I.M. approach to IPM focuses on an ongoing cycle of facility maintenance, sanitation and prevention measures to help keep pests away day in and day out, ensuring maximum protection with minimum exposure.


Just like patients, no two healthcare facilities are alike. That’s why your Orkin Man will start with a comprehensive inspection to understand the unique pest pressures your facility faces. Then, based on his findings, he’ll work with you to build a protection plan – just for your facility – that puts our scientific methods to work. Our standard Healthcare Precision Protection™ program includes insect and rodent control. You can also choose to add our Gold Medal QA™ package, which provides an additional layer of quality assurance and detailed documentation to help you meet and exceed the needs of the Joint Commission.

In addition to pest control, your program might include other services such as:

Exclusion – Pests can enter your facility through doors and small cracks. Orkin will work with you to seal potential pest entry points and help protect your building by making it less attractive to pests.

Actizyme™ Floor and Drain Cleaner – A low-impact answer to grease and grime, Orkin Actizyme™ Floor and Drain Cleaner is a professional cleaning solution that uses a unique blend of naturally occurring enzymes and beneficial bacteria to break down even the toughest grease and grime.

Bed Bug Control – Bed bugs are a growing problem in healthcare establishments, but Orkin can help prevent them from hurting your reputation for outstanding care. To address bed bug infestations, Orkin will implement an aggressive strategy that includes a comprehensive inspection of areas of concern, treatment of infested areas and follow-up inspections.

Bird Control – Birds can be a major nuisance and cause expensive property damage to buildings, roofs and ventilations systems. Even worse, they can spread serious illness to your staff or visitors/patients. Our Bird Control program can help protect your healthcare facility from this difficult problem.
