WHY ACCREDIT - COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

 

All of the benefits of HLAC accreditation, when combined, give a laundry a genuine advantage over its competitors.


It is an edge that enables the laundry to crystallize and communicate those specific qualities that make it different from everyone else in the marketplace.

Because of your accreditation, you can tell clients you share their patient safety goals, that you’ve raised the bar on how a laundry should process healthcare textiles, that they can have confidence in your highest of standards, and that your practices are the industry’s best and most current available.

All of the benefits of HLAC accreditation, when combined, give a laundry a competitive edge that enables the laundry to crystallize and communicate those specific qualities that make it different from everyone else in the marketplace.

Important Notice About the HLAC Accreditation Program

 

An HLAC inspector’s assessment of a provider’s facility and processes for the production of hygienically clean reusable healthcare textiles is based on the integrated requirements, best practices, and guidance from diverse entities adopted by reference in the 2016 HLAC Accreditation Standards. HLAC inspectors are not certified as state or federal surveyors nor should compliance with HLAC Standards be interpreted as state or federal certified compliance with all state or federal regulations.  Neither are HLAC inspectors qualified to certify compliance with local regulations or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Laundries are typically inspected only once every three years but may be inspected more frequently.  The laundry undertakes to maintain the accreditation standards throughout the three years but HLAC makes no warranties to this effect.  HLAC DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF PARTICIPATING LAUNDRIES.
