Crown Uniform and Linen Service / Crown Healthcare Apparel Service is proud to announce the accreditation of their second Massachusetts facility by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC). Crown Healthcare Apparel Service now meets HLAC standards in both the Boston and Fall River, MA processing centers. Crown is the only healthcare laundry in New England to have earned this prestigious designation at two locations.

Healthcare Laundry Accreditation is the industry's highest rating for quality and safety and ensures that the inspected facility meets or exceeds the highest standards for processing healthcare textiles as required by the commercial healthcare laundry industry and regulations established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

George Spilios, Regional Manager of Crown, says “We are pleased to have a second HLAC certified facility here in Fall River, MA . The documentation of all of our processes, training, and implementation is a lot of work, but it's critical for Hospitals and Medical Facilities to be confident in their decision to partner with Crown. This accreditation gives our customers the assurance that we've been evaluated independently and meet the quality and safety standards required to service our medical customers.”

As an HLAC certified laundry Crown Healthcare Apparel Service helps their customers achieve compliance with OSHA's bloodborne pathogen regulations by using state of the art laundering equipment, specialized employee training, and healthcare textile best practices in order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and pathogens entrenched in soiled linen. Crown provides a full medical scrubs service and offers a full line of hospital scrubs, lab coats, patient wear, and PPE that are in line with all compliance regulations.

HLAC accreditation means that Crown's customers can be assured that:

• Crown meets or exceeds OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standards.
• Crown facilities are maintained in ways that protect the health and safety of laundry personnel.
• Crown follows recommended best practices in its systems, policies, and procedures.
• Crown provides convenient and consistent delivery of high quality healthcare apparel and linens.
• Crown managers and employees are properly trained and follow all government regulations for handling, processing, and transporting healthcare textiles.

Crown Healthcare Apparel Service is family business that has been a leading provider of healthcare apparel and linen services in New England for more than 90 years. Crown provides a medical scrubs service, hospital linens, and healthcare apparel to hospitals, medical offices, research laboratories, and dental offices.
