Linen is a backstage service that is critical for a hospital¡¯s functioning. Our team created a refill and distribution system to optimize linen use at the VA Boston Healthcare System-West Roxbury Campus, by applying lean concepts to improve process efficiency and provide the best patient care. The VA-Brockton Laundry facility, which cleans linen for the New England VISN, currently utilizes a steam system for washing, drying and ironing. An investigation of the economic and environmental aspects of replacement equipment options was also covered.
