Facilities Management Strategies for Healthcare

While some patients may associate healthcare facilities with sterility and cleanliness, others have heard the horror stories of infections and illnesses caused by germs and pathogens found in hospitals and clinics. Put your patients’ and employees’ minds at ease by ensuring your facilities are hygienic, clean and safe.

Did You Know Dissatisfaction with Cleanliness Contributes to Lower Rankings on Hospital Patient Satisfaction Surveys?1

  • SSIs (Surgical Site Infections) are the “second most common adverse event occurring to hospitalized patients”2
  • A study of healthcare workers who contracted COVID-19 after contact with infected patients revealed “suboptimal handwashing” to be one of the risk factors.3
  • At any given point in time, 1 in 25 inpatients have Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI)4

These infections cost thousands of lives and billions of dollars annually5

6 Ways to Save

Our product-savvy facilities strategists can help you decide which products are the most effective for your industry while helping you develop creative strategies for cutting costs:

Size Matters

Seemingly insignificant choices, such as the type, thickness and size of your trash liners, can yield big savings over time.

Don’t Pay for Water

When you buy pre-mixed chemicals, you’re mostly paying for water. Mixing on site is both cost-effective and safe.


Control Your Portions

Let dispensers, not customers, dictate how much paper and soap to dispense, thereby reducing the risk of wasted product. Smart technology can even alert you when dispensers are low.


Be Strategic

Our staff training programs can help your employees figure out ways to complete the job faster, safer and more effectively, whether they’re cleaning floors or mixing chemicals.

Get Your Fiber

Microfiber, that is. Traditional mops just push dirty water around. Microfiber mops are highly absorbent and eco-friendly, reducing water waste while preventing the spread of germs.


Stop the Juggling Act

Managing multiple vendor relationships is time consuming, costly and unnecessary. One vendor can fill multiple needs, such as training, janitorial supplies, furniture and equipment.
