BOSTON — The second Massachusetts facility of Crown Uniform and Linen Service/Crown Healthcare Apparel Service has been accredited by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC). Crown Healthcare Apparel Service now meets HLAC standards in its Boston and Fall River, Mass., processing centers, the company says.
“We are pleased to have a second HLAC-certified facility here in Fall River, Mass.,” says George Spilios, regional manager of Crown. “The documentation of all of our processes, training, and implementation is a lot of work, but it’s critical for hospitals and medical facilities to be confident in their decision to partner with Crown.
“This accreditation gives our customers the assurance that we’ve been evaluated independently and meet the quality and safety standards required to service our medical customers.”
Crown Healthcare Apparel Service helps its customers achieve compliance with OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen regulations by using state-of-the-art laundering equipment, specialized employee training, and healthcare textile best practices in order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and pathogens entrenched in soiled linen.
