Healthcare Facilities

Your Patients’ Health and Wellbeing is Our Priority

Your healthcare facility needs exceptional medical cleaning services that:

  • Combine an understanding of patient care, technology solutions, and your goals
  • Prevents the spread of disease, viruses and airborne pathogens
  • Helps ensure regulatory compliance, and safe chemical and waste handling

Your patients have the right to expect that their healthcare clinic (urgent care, dialysis, radiology, chemotherapy) provides a safe, clean, and professional environment. Those seeking wellness, including the immunocompromised, require peace while getting their necessary treatments.

Patients have the right to expect the facility to make them comfortable and give them treatment on time according to a schedule that meets their needs. They also have the right to expect that facilities, treatment, and equipment adhere to The Joint Commission Accreditation (TJC), Det Norske Veritas, Inc (DNV), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance standards.

When you partner with a modern, professional facilities management company that puts your patients’ needs first, you’ll get all this and more.

What happened when a lower-cost facility service provider put patients, operations, and revenue at risk.

When one of our clients, a top clinical dialysis organization, moved to a lower cost “aggregator,” it saw rippling effects on its operations, patients, and P&L.

The client, serving 26,000 patients across 32 states in 400 facilities, hired a lower-cost service provider that outsourced to a patchwork of small, individually owned janitorial companies. As a result, there was limited standardization and oversight.

Due to the aggregators' limitations, the dialysis organization and its centers suffered more significant variability and increased operational and patient risk.

  • The aggregator was challenged to find service providers for many locations during the pandemic.
  • The local mom-and-pop shops weren’t providing service up to expectations and adhering to regulatory guidelines across all sites.
  • They weren’t using medical-grade disinfectants and EPA chemicals, ensuring the safety of ill patients with compromised immune systems.
  • Clinic managers were burdened with facility issues. This took their focus off the patients, as the caregiver’s and staff’s sick time increased.
  • Due to short staffing, patients became frustrated with long wait times to get treatment.
  • Individual clinics failed scheduled and surprise audits resulting in fines and affecting margins.
  • Through surveys, the center found that patients did not feel “safe” and “comfortable” getting treatment at these locations.

The lower-cost facility provider offered a 10-15% savings. But in the face of brand damage, productivity losses, regulatory fines, lost patients, and the cost of multiple potential site shutdowns, those “savings” ultimately hurt the organization.

This is why they returned to OpenWorks.

Work with a Service Provider That Knows Silence isn’t Necessarily Good

Because you haven’t heard noise yet, doesn’t mean compliance issues aren’t silently creeping up. You need to partner with a facility management company that helps you get in front of any situation before it impacts HCAHPS (H-caps) scores, service performance, and audits.

By partnering with a facility management provider that will provide consistent quality assurance visits to uncover areas for improvement and optimization, you won’t have to fear the silence of no complaints.
