AdvaCare expansion to elevate cleanliness standard in healthcare linen

Angelica Corporation announced its decision to expand its use of Ecolab's AdvaCare(R) 120 Sanitizer/Sour, the first EPA-registered oxygen bleach sanitizer, to all its service centers nationwide after testing the product successfully at selected locations.

Angelica is the first major healthcare laundry processor to implement the sanitizer throughout its service centers. "Expanding this new wash process will elevate the standard of cleanliness in healthcare linen," said CEO Steve O'Hara."AdvaCare surpasses historical industry standards of 'hygienically clean,' achieving a 99.9% kill rate of selected pathogens through sanitization during the laundry process."

With heightened public awareness of hospital-acquired infections(HAI) and the exclusion of funding from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) for HAIs, healthcare providers are understandably concerned and intensifying their focus on HAI prevention. Angelica gives healthcare providers added confidence that their linens are sanitized against MRSA, Staph, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. O'Hara added, "AdvaCare fundamentally and directly addresses the provider's efforts for HAI prevention."

"The sanitizer is one component of Angelica's overall green strategy, which also includes using non-phosphated and NPE-free alkali, conditioners, and detergents, investing capital in more energy efficient equipment and water recycling systems, as well as many other actions to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions that were identified in a recently completed carbon footprint study of our operations," said O'Hara. Through our partnership with Ecolab, Angelica has the potential to further reduce water consumption, which in turn can lower energy requirements.

O'Hara concluded, "Angelica's strategy is 'Delightful Service through Innovation.' Recent innovations have focused on new products such as Angel Sliders to reduce nurse back injuries and Angel Kits to improve hospital cleanliness. Now, in partnership with Ecolab, we are leading innovation in our core wash process, allowing us to provide safe, high-quality products and services that healthcare providers and patients expect and deserve. This helps us become a better steward of the environment and aligns us with our customers' own green strategy. It's a win-win for everyone."
