Medline has entered into a partnership with North Heights Linen Service, a full-service healthcare laundry processing facility in Amarillo, Texas, to provide access to its Ready-to-Use pre-washed and pre-packaged linens to health systems across the country
To kick off the partnership, Medline also worked directly with North Heights Linen Service to set up operations in their new healthcare laundry plant, which opened in June 2021.
Medline’s Ready-to-Use pre-laundered and pre-packaged linens undergo a rigorous sanitizing and handling process and are critical in supporting healthcare workers as a more efficient and timely solution during emergency and labor-constrained circumstances. These pre-laundered sheets, blankets, towels, washcloths and patient gowns are ready for immediate use, skipping the processing step required for new product injections. Being processed in the Texas Panhandle, local communities benefit tremendously, given the history of the lack of healthcare laundry processing facilities in the nearby area and the region’s susceptibility to weather-related events, in addition to health systems nationally.
