The Resources for Service Providers

Textile care service providers consist of laundry processors and linen management professionals providing textiles for hospitals, long-term care, hotels, restaurants and other companies using linens.  They include on-premise laundries, commercial laundries, cooperative laundries as well as linen management, distribution and utilization. 

Laundry & linen providers for hospitals and long term care are under a bit more scrutiny today.  The key focus is on providing properly processed textiles to avoid adding to the healthcare concerns of the patient while protecting the laundry employee from the bioburden on the soiled textiles while washing the products.
