Eggleston Laundry Receives Industry Accreditation

Eggleston has received accreditation, the industry’s highest rating on quality and safety, from the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC).

HLAC is a non – profit organization that inspects and accredits laundries processing healthcare textiles for hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities; and their mission is to publish high standards for processing healthcare textiles in laundries, and to provide an accreditation process that recognizes those laundries that meet these high standards. The decision to become accredited is voluntary.

“Becoming accredited makes us a better service provider. It gives our customers peace of mind to know that their supplier is meeting the highest standards in processing healthcare textiles,” says Leah Boyd, Eggleston’s Associate Vice President of Laundry Services. She added that “The customers we serve — predominately hospitals and military customers — are used to dealing with agencies, vendors and people who have accreditation. It’s the right thing to do if you are in the business of processing and providing healthcare textiles.”

The primary benefit of accreditation is that an independent third party has inspected our facility and found that it meets or exceeds the highest standards for processing healthcare textiles.
