Toyota Tsusho Corporation and Tokai Corp Launch Joint Venture for Hospital Linen Management Services in India
Toyota Tsusho Corporation and Tokai Corp have partnered to launch Valabhi Hospital Services, a joint venture that will provide comprehensive end-to-end linen management services to hospitals in India. The aim is to revolutionize hospital linen management and offer improved hygiene in healthcare institutions across the country. Valabhi Hospital Services will operate in Bangalore, with plans to expand its operations in other cities and states in the near future.
Hospital linen management is a critical aspect of maintaining high standards of patient care and hygiene in healthcare institutions. Mishandling and mismanagement of linen can significantly increase the risk of infections for patients and hospital staff alike. With Valabhi Hospital Services, Toyota Tsusho and Tokai Corp aim to bring the technology and philosophy developed by Tokai Corp for infection control over the past 69 years to India, to support medical facilities and develop public health in the country.
Valabhi Hospital Services will provide hygienic laundry and linen management services without compromising on quality and reliability. The joint venture is based on a Linen Rental Model to free hospitals from capex expenditure, an RFID Tag System for ease of ground level staff, and an End-to-End Linen Management Service to avoid any dysconnectivity between people. As the Indian government prioritizes healthcare infrastructure, the partners are confident that their services will help safeguard patients and staff from the risk of infections.
