Angelica, Houston, one of four company laundries recertifying Hygienically Clean Healthcare29 March 2021
A company that holds the proud distinction of most Healthcare Certified laundries in USA recertifies four laundries under the scheme. Angelica, one of the nation’s largest healthcare linen providers, has recently recertified its Pomona, California; Somerville, Massachusetts; Dallas, Texas; and Houston, Texas facilities as part of the Hygienically Clean Healthcare Certification Program. Angelica maintains this certification at all 21 of its facilities resulting in the most hygienically clean healthcare certified laundries in the USA.
Hygienically Clean is the quantified, validated standard and measure for hygienically clean textiles in North America since 2011, and achieving this certification is reflective of their commitment to Best Management Practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.
Angelica’s locations are in Phoenix, AZ; Colton, Fresno, Orange, Pittsburg, Pomona, Sacramento, and San Fernando, CA; Holly Hill and Tampa, FL; Rockmart, GA; Chicago, IL; Somerville and Worcester, MA; Henderson, NV; Batavia, NY; Lorain, OH; Pawtucket, RI; Columbia, SC; and Dallas and Houston, TX.
The Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification confirms the organization’s continuing dedication to infection prevention; compliance with recognized industry standards; and processing healthcare textiles using BMPs as described in its quality assurance documentation, a focal point for Hygienically Clean inspectors’ evaluation. The independent, third-party inspection must also confirm essential evidence that employees are properly trained and protected, managers understand regulatory requirements (including OSHA compliance) and the physical plant operates effectively.
“Congratulations to Angelica on their recertifications,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO. “This achievement proves their continued commitment to infection prevention and that their laundry takes every step possible to prevent human illness.”
