The hospital laundry in Vichy will soon reach its full capacity (France)

The inter-hospital laundry of Vichy cleans the linen of four establishments of Saone-et-Loire and awaits the additional activity for September. The laundry is washing more and more laundry at the hospital Vichy and is expected to reach soon full capacity. Since the beginning of the year, sheets, towels, professional clothes, textiles of the surgical activity and shirts allocated to patients arrive by truck from the hospitals of Paray-le-Monial and Charolles, and nursing homes of Digoin and Geugnon. These four establishments in Saône-et-Loire have joined the public interest group (GIP), which manages the laundry, to rent and have their textiles cleaned.

The laundry can handle up to 16 tons of laundry per business day and will reach almost its maximum production capacity this fall. Since 2015, it has been looking for additional quantities to lower the price per kg of linen per member.
