Nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and other long-term healthcare facilities face the ongoing challenge of maintaining clean and hygienic environments. Proper laundry care is a critical aspect of this responsibility, as it ensures cleanliness and safety for residents, patients, and staff.

They wash and dry a variety of linens daily, including sheets, towels, gowns, scrubs, napkins and tablecloths.

Our laundry experts understand the wide range of requirements and challenges facing healthcare laundry operations. With soaring utility costs, you need water- and energy-efficient solutions to help preserve your bottom line. Importantly, the laundry equipment you choose should minimize processing time enabling your staff to maximize the productivity of the laundry. From programmable controls and custom settings to industrial Custom Batch Washers, our healthcare laundry solutions can handle it all while delivering consistent, efficient clean laundry for the people you service.

Assess Your Unique Laundry Requirements

It’s crucial to evaluate the laundry requirements of your nursing home or long-term healthcare facility. Consider factors such as the number of residents, average daily laundry loads, types of items to be laundered (bed linens, towels, clothing), and any specialized needs (e.g., infection control protocols). By understanding your laundry needs, you can make informed decisions when choosing the right commercial laundry equipment. H-M will help you analyze your needs and arrive at a solution that will provide you with the optimal mix of laundry machines.

For example, a large facility with a high volume of laundry might require a mix of large capacity and smaller capacity washers and dryers to handle varying size loads efficiently. On the other hand, a smaller facility may benefit from smaller capacity equipment. Factors that are considered include the amount and mix of laundry being handled, the number of shifts you operate and available space.
