Emerald Textiles joins UC San Diego Health System
May '11
Emerald Textiles, a Southern California commercial healthcare laundry provider is pleased to announce its selection by UC San Diego Health System as its exclusive vendor of linen rentals and services for all of its medical facilities. Emerald Textiles operates the most technologically-advanced laundry facility in the United States, and saves the county of San Diego 40 million gallons of water and more than 700,000 therms of natural gas annually.

“Emerald Textiles is proud to join UC San Diego Health System in their mission of excellence” said Tom Gildred, founder and chief executive officer of Emerald Textiles. “Emerald has the newest technology and energy-efficient processes available, as well as the capacity to provide value-added services such as cart exchange and customized pack programs. We offer the most environmentally responsible choice and provide the highest quality linens combined with cost-saving solutions.”

UC San Diego Health System is the region's only academic health system and is comprised of UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest, and UC San Diego Thornton Hospital, Moores Cancer Center, Shiley Eye Center, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center (opening soon) and Jacobs Medical Center (slated to open in 2015) in La Jolla. The health system was recently ranked #1 by U.S. News & World Report's first-ever “Best Hospitals” metro rankings.

Emerald Textiles' San Diego facility is housed in an 111,000 square-foot industrial building and outfitted with the most advanced technology available. Fully compliant with all federal, state and industry standards, it is the first commercial laundry in San Diego to provide 100-percent separation between the soil and clean areas of the plant, which is supported by positive air flow and automated processes.

Emerald recently received the SDG&E Savings by Design Award, in recognition for its advanced energy and water saving management systems. Savings by Design is an award created by the California Public Utilities Commission and San Diego Gas & Electric.
