The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) salutes 61 healthcare laundries that received accreditation

March 27, 2017

HLAC is a nonprofit organization that inspects and accredits laundries that process reusable textiles for hospital, nursing home and other healthcare facilities.

Commenting on the announcement, HLAC Board President John Scherberger said: "With their HLAC accreditation, each of these 61 organizations has committed to a new level of excellence in the way they process healthcare textiles. This is a message worth communicating to their healthcare clients. It's a valuable way to reinforce with clients that they share their patient safety goals; and that their practices are the industry's best and most current available. It's also a reminder that laundries without HLAC accreditation come up short in these comparisons"

For more than 10 years HLAC has been inspecting and accrediting healthcare laundries. HLAC accreditation, which is good for three years, means that a laundry meets HLAC Accreditation Standards. These standards have been documented, published and professionally recognized. Accreditation affirms that a laundry organization that processes healthcare linens has successfully passed an inspection of the following: its facility, policies and procedures, training programs, and its relationships with its healthcare customers.

Here are the 61 2016 HLAC accredited laundries:
