BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Mission Linen Supply reports that its Bakersfield facility has been accredited by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC), making it the seventh plant companywide to be so recognized.
The Bakersfield plant joins facilities in Phoenix, Ariz.; Albuquerque, N.M.; and Santa Maria, Fresno, Salinas and Chino, Calif.
HLAC is a non-profit organization that inspects and accredits laundries that process healthcare textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. National inspections assure customers that the highest-quality standards are met when processing healthcare products, Mission Linen Supply says.
“Earning accreditation makes us a better company and gives our customers peace of mind from knowing their supplier is meeting the highest standards in processing healthcare textiles,” says Karl Willig, Mission Linen Supply president/CEO..
“The customers that we serve—predominately acute-care hospitals—are accustomed to dealing with agencies, vendors and people who have earned accreditation. It’s the right thing to do if you are in the business of processing and providing healthcare textiles.”
