Keeping the Laundry...
and MaKing it WorK
BY DERI ROSS PRYOR
IN SUNNY CENTRAL FLORIDA LIES the hub of one of
largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in the united states.
florida Hospital in orlando is a 2,247 bed acute-care medical
facility, part of the massive Adventist Health system which
also includes twenty-two satellite campuses serving the
population throughout the state.
from a laundry standpoint, servicing such a large system
is a substantial undertaking, but it has been made easier with
a new state-of-the-art facility built in 2013 on the orlando
campus. the laundry currently serves 18 of the 22 campuses,
with plans to include the remaining facilities in the near future.
the path to the new laundry facility was not a straight line.
chip Malboeuf of turnKey engineering says his company
was brought onboard in the early 2000's to discuss ways to
revamp the existing facility to maximize efficiency. there was
a comprehensive renovation, but as volume increased that
space quickly became inadequate again. By 2010 it became
apparent something more needed to be done.
