New Castle, Delaware, April 1, 2020 – Nixon Medical is honored to partner with the USNS Comfort Navy hospital ship, currently deployed in New York at Pier 90 on the West Side of Manhattan, to provide scrub and linen laundering services as the floating hospital relieves pressure on the city’s hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis.
Our team will provide complete laundering services for the hospital’s linen and medical scrub needs from our HLAC-accredited medical laundering facilities. We’ll provide these services from three of our regional locations including East Hartford, Connecticut, Edison, New Jersey and New Castle, Delaware.
We’re incredibly proud and humbled to be part of the team helping the U.S. Navy offer relief to hospitals, healthcare professionals, and patients during this time. This pandemic is an opportunity for companies and individuals to show up for those in need, and our team is energized and equipped to provide the USNS with supply, laundering, and delivery.
We look forward to showing the civilian doctors and USNS Comfort doctors working on the ship what the Nixon Medical Service Difference is all about. The ship will be used mostly to treat non-coronavirus patients from its 1,000 beds and 12 operating rooms, alleviating capacity in the city’s hospitals.
During this time, we have also expanded our capabilities to serve both inpatient and outpatient healthcare and medical centers with trusted medical linens and apparel. If your facility needs medical linen or apparel rentals, laundry services and delivery, or inventory management, contact us. Our team is taking every precaution to continue serving existing and new customers, and our Route Service Representatives are increasing communication to accommodate special requests and emergency needs.
