Girbau, a world leader in complete professional laundry solutions, has updated the laundry at the Hospital Clínico Universitario Lozano Blesa in Zaragoza, achieving a major improvement in productivity, energy efficiency and capacity and enabling the laundry to process 6,300 kg of laundry per shift, compared to 5,500 kg before. The laundry, opened in December 2019, was fully refitted by Girbau, using a new “pay per use” model which is 100% results-oriented. Under this model, which is planned to work for 12 years, the hospital pays per kilo of linen washed and bears the costs of water, electricity and gas, while Girbau supplies the chemicals and maintains the equipment installed, which remains its property.
“With the new procurement model we have assured a service vital to the operation of our hospital facilities while sharing the management and the improvements achieved with the contractors.”
