Working in the healthcare industry, there are certain things that you become accustomed to. One of the immediate take-aways from a day spent in a medical facility is that there are plenty of people who need help. At ImageFIRST, we strive to offer help wherever we can, whether to healthcare staff pushing to increase patient satisfaction or to community members in need.
In the month of August, ImageFIRST set out to make a difference in the lives of the people and animals in our communities. Our company has been known since its inception to always strive to provide a better quality of life to both the patients in the facilities they serve and the communities they work in.
At ImageFIRST®, our dedication to enriching the quality of care in healthcare facilities is clear to everyone who enlists our services. Dedication and innovation have driven our company forward and through obstacles for more than half of a century. We’ve pushed the bounds of what people thought possible in our realm of linen rental and laundry service, but kept what we felt were integral practices in the industry, even when our competitors decided to forgo them.
At ImageFIRST, we know that being a good vendor partner means providing our customers with remarkable service. That means that our role as a healthcare laundry specialist and provider of medical scrubs in St. Paul, MN and surrounding communities encompasses much more than “pick up, drop off, repeat.”
At ImageFIRST, we pride ourselves on delivering quality products to the healthcare facilities that we partner with, but there are other things we’re proud of. We enable our associates to do meaningful work and grow at every level in our organization. We work as a team not only to manage the tasks at hand but to anticipate any and all of the ones we see coming. We facilitate learning and growth for every single employee, regardless of where they see themselves going in the future.
Hello, everyone! Happy Spring 2016!
So far, this year has been a big one for us here at ImageFIRST, and we are happy to say that we are not only helping more and more clients with their patients, but that we have been out and about volunteering our time at some of our favorite charities.
In fact, we recently celebrated "All Associate Day" in late January. And, if you don't know, this day is one where we recognize our associates for all of the hard work they have done, and give them an opportunity to donate their time to a local charity.
For those of you who don't already know, we here at ImageFIRST take tremendous pride in the fact that we make it one of our highest priorities to volunteer at local charities and organizations all throughout the year. In fact, this year, we took it upon ourselves to once again volunteer at the Philadelphia Cradles to Crayons, located in Conshohocken, PA.
Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization with two locations—one in the Philadelphia, PA area, and one in the Boston, MA area. The organization is relatively new—as it was established in 2002—and has a mission of providing basic living essentials, like clothes, school supplies, and even toys to children up to 12-years-old.
If you didn't know, we held our 1st Annual Community Giving Day on Friday, September 18, 2015. It was a day that several associates from ImageFIRST locations across the United States (including our King of Prussia headquarters) spent the day volunteering at a local charity.
To your patients, a patient gown is not just a patient gown; it's a tangible expression of the care they can expect from you. If your gowns are stained, dirty or torn, your patients will think that your patient care is as substandard as your medical linen service. On the other hand, if you provide a patient gown that surprises them with its exceptional quality and comfort, your patients are likely to think highly of your practice as a whole.
When you think about changing things in your facility, you probably have some grand plans that could take many years and some little things that you could change in a day. Your medical linens could be part of both.
