SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Cottage Health System, described as the single not-for-profit provider of acute hospital care in the greater Santa Barbara area, has renewed its longtime contract with Mission Linen Supply, the linen supply company reports.
Under the agreement, Mission Linen will continue to launder all patient linens for three Cottage Acute Care facilities, as well as provide kitchen products, lab coats, floor care products and uniforms for 10 additional labs, clinics and dietary accounts.
The agreement with Mission Linen is for two Cottage hospitals in Santa Barbara and Goleta, Calif., and for Santa Ynez Hospital in Santa Ynez, Calif.
The decision to renew the contract with Mission was made after a review of options in the area, according to Afshin Fatholahi, vice president of support services at Cottage Health System.
“Our relationship with Mission Linen Supply goes back to 2008 and has grown due to Mission’s ability and flexibility to meet our needs and requirements,” Fatholahi says. “We believe it’s important to keep our business within the community and support a local business in Santa Barbara which offers economical advantages for the community at large. It’s a win-win situation.”
The contract with Cottage Hospital will be serviced by Mission Linen plants in Santa Barbara and Santa Maria, Calif.
