Healthcare Security Programs

STT Security Services recognizes that providing healthcare security is a unique challenge that requires training and adaptability to implement successfully. It is our mission meet that challenge with comprehensive training, customized program development and the highest standards in customer service.

Recognizing the Rising Need for Healthcare Security

“You need well-trained, educated, competent and committed security staff — really professional people who understand the complexities and nuances of healthcare.”

Bonnie Michelman, Director of Police, Security and Outside Services at Massachusetts General Hospital

The need for Healthcare Security becomes clear when you examine the rise in healthcare related violence. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the rate of hospital employees intentionally injured on the job at the hands of another person is significantly higher than the rate across all private industries. The most recent data shows 4 times the cases of injuries for full-time hospital workers, versus cases for all private industries. Further, according to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration guide on addressing violence in hospitals, 70 to 74 percent of workplace assaults in a two year period happened in health care settings. STT Security Services Healthcare Division was developed with the express purpose of meeting this rising need.

Our healthcare security programs are designed to work around the needs of our healthcare clients, striking that necessary balance between keeping people and facilities safe without hindering accessibility.

Healthcare Security Professionals

Meeting the needs of a health care facility requires more than a standard uniformed officer. It requires a healthcare security professional.

STT also utilizes in-house Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) Certified instructors to ensure our officers are trained with best-practice de-escalation skills and safe physical intervention methods.

Company Information


STT had its beginnings in 1973 when founded by Dave Rusch, former Police Officer. Dave left the public sector to fill what he felt was a lack of available quality services  in the areas of: security, investigative, and business loss-prevention services.

In its infancy, STT’s core was comprised of private investigative and loss-prevention services. Due to strong reputation of integrity and professionalism STT”s service offerings quickly expanded to include uniform security and inventory auditing services.

Since that time STT has grown into a national organization with multiple divisions catering to various types of clients throughout the United States.  Despite major growth the company has always held on to the ideals and goals set forth from day one -build and maintain mutually beneficial business relationships. Each and every service offered by STT is personal and handled with professionalism. Dave is still actively involved in the business and works directly with his corporate staff, managers and clients on a daily basis.
