Xanitos clients have experienced enhanced service and quality and have reduced costs by moving linen and laundry responsibilities under the knowledgeable Xanitos management umbrella. The restructuring of responsibilities provides a continuum of service under an independent management team that oversees the financial, operational and contractual responsibilities of the linen and laundry program.
Xanitos approaches linen and laundry recognizing the distinction and specialization between linen distribution, linen utilization and laundering.
Linen Distribution : How linen is transported, delivered, deployed and collected throughout a facility.
Linen Utilization : How, why, what and where linen is used and consumed.
Laundry : The cleaning or laundering of the linen and the management/ oversight of the circulating linen inventory (whether linen is owned or leased).
This assessment will encompass all facets of the service and provide an overview of strengths, weakness, and opportunities of your current program. Xanitos' assessment will identify potential cost savings through a variety of linen distribution, utilization and laundry strategies and provide recommendations.
While numerous benchmarks exist to assist facilities in setting cost and linen consumption targets; very few facilities are able to reach or indeed exceed set goals.
Introducing appropriate and sustainable change in linen and laundry is difficult and requires extensive knowledge and capable resources. Xanitos possesses the needed experience and resources and has a successful track record in doing so.
Xanitos can deliver cost reductions and service improvements in linen and laundry and positively impact the current and future of your facility. Regardless of the service model in place, our capabilities and programs will have a positive impact.
Sample service models where Xanitos can help (but not limited to):
In 2013, Xanitos' EVS Director and Regional Manager identified an opportunity to save money: curtain cleaning. It was being contracted out at a cost of approximately $250,000/year. Through a detailed analysis of operating costs with the support of Xanitos' Linen Specialist and President and COO, a comprehensive plan was put together.
"We would not be in the place we are today if it had not been for Xanitos and our onsite manager. We had managed the program ourselves for many years and had become stuck in our approach. Xanitos quickly assessed our operation, offered a plan for improvement working with our hospital-based employees, and implemented the plan in a timely manner. A year later, we are more efficient, quality has improved, and we have found savings in chemicals and other contracted services. Xanitos and their employees do not act like "vendors", they perform like teammates."COO Northwest Hospital
"The support from the regional and corporate leadership has been better than expected, topping anything I had experienced with prior vendors."Client Southeast Hospital
