When medical facilities partner with ImageFIRST, they always get the correct amount of robes they need for their patient volume. But when robes go missing, there isn’t enough linen for patients. This can make inventory management very difficult and time-consuming.

At medical facilities, patients should always be the priority. Recently, the healthcare industry has been developing strategies and making advancements to improve the overall patient experience. Patients are the backbone of every medical practice; so it’s important to keep them as satisfied and comfortable as possible.
ImageFIRST New York, a provider of medical uniform linen service to the Staten Island area, frequently collaborates with our New Jersey team for their quarterly community giving events. Most recently, our teams attended the Autism Speaks Walk, which was held in northern New Jersey on Sunday, May 21, 2017.
Providing scrubs and uniforms in New York City is something that we are always proud of, but on February 14th, we’re proud of something else too -- our associates and coworkers. Valentine’s Day came and went this year with a little extra fanfare for them in our facilities.
The holiday season provides us with an opportunity to give thanks for everything we have in our lives. This time of year also allows us to reflect on the previous 12 months and look over the things that occurred since we last celebrated the New Year.
The quintessential medical facility isn’t exactly the most modern edifice when it comes to interior design. Sure, there are bright colors and maybe a few pieces of art hanging in a hallway, but no one is going to confuse an inpatient facility for an art museum. While some healthcare professionals truly make an art out of their craft, most patients would rather not have to visit the doctor’s office or hospital. They do it because, like so many other things in life, it needs to be done.
Here at ImageFIRST New York, we’re now seeking a high quality professional with an entrepreneurial spirit to join our team as an Assistant General Manager! As a medical linen service provider, we pride ourselves in providing premium goods and services to the medical industry while developing and maintaining long-term business relationships. Below are two of the many reasons to consider becoming an Assistant General Manager at ImageFIRST New York:
If you’re currently looking to kick-off or change your career, ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I community-minded?
- Do I strive to make meaningful and lasting relationships with friends, customers and cohorts?
- Do I strive to succeed in every sense of the term?
- Am I a natural-born leader?
Surveys given to patients with the goal of learning more about the care they’ve received can be extremely useful in determining weak points in a hospital or outpatient facility’s operations. One such survey that stands to have a large effect on the way that Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery centers operate is the recently-approved OAS CAHPS survey, put forth by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Slated to solicit around 300 mandatory surveys per facility in 2017, with optional implementation in 2016, these surveys will help facilities to glean an overarching picture of patient perspective of the care they provide, as well as overall patient satisfaction with their experience.
With increasing consumerism in the medical field bringing about a greater focus on determining what makes patients feel comfortable and confident with the care they have received, medical providers are naturally asking themselves “What can we do to help?” The good news: as a customer-centric business, so is ImageFIRST New York!
As evidenced by the countless testimonials provided by clients across the nation, ImageFIRST Customer Advocates frequently go far beyond their expected responsibilities to provide additional care to the healthcare providers they see every week while making their pick-up, drop-off and inventory rounds. We know that our associates do this in large part because they have developed close personal relationships with many of their clients, and often live in the same communities as those for whom they provide quality healthcare linens.
