Medical practices have enough on their plate; the last thing they need to worry about is their linen. Many practices outsource their linen needs for this very reason. But where can a facility find a reliable, trustworthy provider? It might be tempting to go with a large, national healthcare linen service but they are often provide poor quality materials and service. Local healthcare linen service is far more likely to go above and beyond of their customers. Here’s what that means:
The Main Benefits of Local Healthcare Linen Service
Bigger doesn’t always mean better and that’s especially the case with medical linen service. Local providers offer each of the following pros over national services:
Where national providers are sometimes too big for their own good, local medical linen service ensures personalized service. Bigger companies often have too many layers of red tape to deal with before talking to a decision-maker. However, smaller providers often eliminate this bureaucracy entirely. They have fewer people which means fewer hurdles to jump through and they have fewer clients which means they have more time and effort to give. Many of these businesses are family-owned and their owners even work in the same building or floor as their other staff. This eliminates confusion and demonstrates their commitment to the people they work with and for.
National providers often spread themselves far too thin across the country. Meanwhile, local healthcare linen services not only take on clients they know they can service. They also intimately know the areas they operate in since it’s their home too. All of this translates into more consistent and on-time deliveries with no items disappearing or breaking in transit without warning or explanation.
Investment in the Local Community
Many national providers don’t consider the impact of their operations on the communities they serve. This increases the potential for environmental issues since they don’t operate with the same appreciation or care that comes with local history. It also means they have less incentive to invest in the local community since they are big enough to pick any market in the country. Meanwhile, working with local companies directly benefits the local communities they operate in. They are more likely to care for the environments they both live and operate in while also investing locally to benefit their own communities.
